At Gardens Compounding Pharmacy, we are more than just your run-of-the-mill compounding pharmacists. Apart from providing you with the highest quality pharmaceutical products, we also offer services that cater to your overall well being.
Our customer focused healthcare experience offers various services. These include:
What better way to understand what works best for your body than to look into your DNA! Gardens Compounding Pharmacy proudly offers MyDNA testing for our customers, allowing you, your health care practitioner and your pharmacist to better manage your health.
How Does it Work?
The process is quite simple once you agree for the test.
One of our accredited staff members will perform a simple mouth swab and register your test kit to be sent to the MyDNA lab. Once the results have arrived, you can discuss them with our experienced pharmacists or your healthcare practitioner.
With the MyDNA test you benefit by:
- Saving money and reducing the risk factors of side effects by staying away from inefficient medicines
- Knowing which food and exercise works best for your body
- Creating a comprehensive plan suited for your health and wellbeing
These results are valid for life, so this is a one-time test which you can use in the future as well.
Managing your medications has never been easier. With the MedAdvisor app, you are kept in the know regarding all your prescriptions. It’s a free software that can remind you to take your medications on-time.
With Gardens Compounding Pharmacy, our friendly service can help you set up MedAdvisor on your smartphone. This will allow you to manage your medicines safely in the following ways:
- To take the exact prescribed dosage
- When to take the medicine
- How many repeats you have left
- Whether you are running low on any particular prescription
- Send an order to your compounding pharmacist for a refill
- Minimise waiting time
MedAdvisor saves you travel time (and money!) by making it more convenient for you to either pick up or have your medications delivered at your door step.
Diabetes Risk Screening
Diabetes is a condition that goes unnoticed among most people in its early stages, until it is too late. The best way to tackle diabetes is prevention, and what better way to do that than undergoing a Diabetes Risk Screening.
Gardens Compounding Pharmacy offers you to take this test to ensure that you are safe from this chronic disease. If it goes unnoticed, it can have dire ramifications for your body as it results in damaging your precious organs such as your eyes, kidneys and blood vessels.
Once you have undergone the screening, you will receive a diabetes risk score that will allow you to take precautionary measures against this condition.
Heart Health Check
If you haven’t undergone a heart health check in a long time (or have never done one!), it is vital that you do it as soon as possible. This check is the best way for you to learn about:
- The risk factors of a stroke
- The chances of you having a heart attack
- Risk factors for any heart diseases
The heart health check involves the following:
- Measuring your heart's pulse rate
- Calculating your waist and waist-to-hip ratio
- Checking your blood pressure, both systolic & diastolic
- Body mass index calculation
- A blood test to measure your cholesterol levels
With this knowledge, you can work with your health care practitioner to manage your heart health. It also allows you to take any precautionary measures (in case of risk factors being high!) to ensure that your heart remains pumping good and strong!
AIA Vitality Check
At Gardens Compounding Pharmacy, we believe the best way to find out whether you are at risk of developing any chronic disease(s) is to go for an AIA Vitality Check. This check consists of:
- Measuring your Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Checking your blood pressure
- Measuring your cholesterol levels
- Checking your random glucose levels
With the results, you are equipped with the knowledge about your body and its health. Now, you can sit down with your doctor and , if required, work out a plan towards a bettering your health.
Flu & Whooping Cough Vaccinations
Gardens Compounding Pharmacy offers the Albury community state-of-the-art and high quality immunisation vaccinations for flu and whooping cough. Vaccinations are an integral part of any health program in a community as it guards you and your family against diseases and viruses.
Every time winter approaches, it is important to get the flu shot in order to fend off that particular strain of virus. If these vaccinations are not taken in time, they can lead to illness and disease spreading among the community.
So visit us or give us a call at Gardens Compounding Pharmacy to learn more about when you should come in for vaccination.
