    • Overview

      Almost every known disease has as its first treatment option the incorporation of lifestyle modifications, including diet and exercise.  Although such lifestyle modifications are encouraged, pharmacists have minimal (if any) training in exercise physiology, and  dietary interventions.  Join our own retail pharmacist, "Professor Pete" Kreckel for treatment ideas that pertain to his patients with Type-2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, osteoporosis as well as other disease states.
