At Buderim Pharmacy, we take our role as a vital contributor to improving health outcomes for the community very seriously.
Most health problems need care over many years and even decades. Yet, many can be prevented or better managed. The causes of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart conditions, strokes, arthritis, lung conditions and depression all depend on a number of factors. Lifestyle and behaviour are some of the main reasons. Of course, certain things can’t be changed such as age and family history. But other factors such as obesity, hypertension, stress and impaired glucose tolerance can be influenced, and in many cases, effectively managed.
Some of the best ways to reduce the effect of chronic conditions are to lower some of the risk factors through things like increasing physical activity, healthy eating and early identification. Monitoring and screening tests are another proven way to understand and manage a wide range of health conditions.
At Buderim Pharmacy, you would be surprised at just how many screening and testing services we offer in store for our customers. A number of these are free services funded by the government.
As well as blood pressure and blood glucose tests, other monitoring and screening services include basic health checks, medicine use reviews and a baby monitoring service by a qualified professional. We also provide advice on weight management and smoking cessation. These services are part of our complete approach to providing quality support across the widest possible range of health issues and conditions. They also are the evidence of our passion for engaging with our customers and contributing to a healthy community.
I’ll keep you updated on topical health issues and tell you about new services as we introduce them. We really are there to be part of the team that cares for your health and wellbeing, every day of the week, every week of the year.
