Diabetes is a disorder characterized by high blood sugar.

Having high blood sugars can lead to very serious complications such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and amputations. In fact, diabetes is a leading cause of death by disease in Canada.

However, people living with diabetes can delay the onset of these complications through healthy lifestyles and medications.

At Canada Chemists, our staff understands the issues relating to diabetes. Our trained, educated and certified specialists work with patients to give them the knowledge, tools, and support they need to live with diabetes.

We are a Community Pharmacy Outreach Program (CPOP) partnered with the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) in Ottawa. Together, we provide the public with credible information from Canada’s leading organization committed to the health, welfare, and research of people living with diabetes.

Pre-diabetes is a reversible condition that when diagnosed and treated, can prevent the onset of diabetes. At Canada Chemists, we offer the unique service of providing free pre-diabetes risk assessments and counselling to patients. No appointments are necessary.

We maintain a permanent inventory of insulin pump supplies at wholesale prices with no minimum orders necessary.
