Diabetes Management

 

Diabetes is a complex disease that results in too much sugar in the blood.  This can be caused by either a lack of insulin production by the pancreas (Type 1) or the body becoming resistant to insulin (Type 2).  Multiple drugs are used to treat diabetes, some of which include insulin, metformin, and many others.  This is where a pharmacists comes in handy! 

Our pharmacy offers a number of different services to our patient's including Free Blood Sugar Test Strips, medication therapy management, and diet planning.

We understand that patients with diabetes often run into difficulties when starting medication therapy and we are here to help you every step of the way.  If you're having trouble tolerating your medication therapy, talk to our pharmacy staff!   

 

Huntington's Disease

Carolina Forest Pharmacy takes great pleasure in standing by and assisting patient's affected by Huntington's Disease (HD) across South Carolina.  If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with HD, or is at risk for developing the condition, please feel free to reach out to our pharmacy.  We understand that there are not many pharmacies within Myrtle Beach, South Carolina well versed in HD Care and we would like to be a helpful resource for patients dealing with the disease.  

 

 Xenazine® (tetrabenazine) is the main drug used in Huntington's Disease. It oftentimes requires very careful monitoring and individualized dosing considerations.  Many pharmacies do not take the time to familiarize patients and caregivers with their protocol, and as a result, patients do not receive personalized counseling for their specific needs.  At Carolina Forest Pharmacy, we will take the time to counsel you on your medication therapy and do everything we possibly can to make sure you receive the personalized care you deserve.
