When you’re diagnosed with chronic conditions or even short-term ailments, your doctor will give you prescriptions to help manage and treat them. Some prescription drugs can be rendered ineffective if your current lifestyle impedes your progress. For example, you can take medications for cholesterol problems, but if you have a poor diet and don’t perform any exercise, your cholesterol levels will remain high.
Our pharmacy services in New Jersey can help you learn and accomplish healthy habits, so your medications will be in full effect. You can start by consuming a healthy diet that consists of a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, eggs, legumes, soy products, and low-fat dairy while also ensuring you avoid highly processed foods. You should also cut down on harmful vices like smoking and drinking for long-term health benefits.
Another thing you should add to your list of lifestyle changes is starting your weight loss journey. Our body changes as we grow older, which requires higher maintenance.
When it comes to modifications to your exercise program and nutrients, our health care team offers patient counseling and individualized patient care.
We also have DME for cases like mobility assistance to promote the patient’s safety at home. If you’re running out of supplies or need advice on medication management, our retail pharmacy in Lodi, New Jersey, has got you covered.
