Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA – Apple Discount Drugs, a locally owned Health Mart pharmacy, is pleased to announce exclusive offerings for Diabetes Awareness month throughout the month of November. Diabetic patients can take advantage of classes, testings, special discounts on diabetes products and the promotion of the American Diabetes Association campaign, "A Day in the Life of Diabetes."

Help Apple Discount Drugs Build the True Picture of Diabetes:

Share your experiences so others can learn useful and beneficial tips and information. Submit your photos and testimonials to the staff at Apple on how you live with diabetes.  Apple will post these testimonials to the Apple Facebook page throughout the month of November.

"Being in the healthcare profession, we care about the health and well-being of the people in our community," said John Motsko, Apple Certified Diabetes Educator®.  "With the rate of people living with diabetes on the Shore almost doubling the national rate, we know there is a need for specialized diabetes services and counseling.  The one-on-one and group counseling sessions are offered all year long by appointment.  We know this disease doesn't go away so we want to empower people to learn how to manage diabetes and live a better quality of life."

The following offerings will be made available to people with diabetes in the local community:

- A1C Test, average blood sugar level over a three month period – Test by appointment for $9.99

- November special on glucose tablets - 49-cents (regularly $1.49) – Glucose tablets raise blood sugar levels when blood sugar readings are dangerously low. Patients who experience the symptoms of low blood sugars really value the benefits of these tablets.
