    • Overview

      The effects of non-drug therapies including diet, exercise, and other lifestyle modifications are being studied now more than ever. In 2014 alone, high quality studies have been conducted related to what diets lead to the greatest weight loss, the effect of excess weight on the risk and outcomes of a number of disease states, the effect of muscle mass on longevity, the effect of electrolytes on blood pressure, and, as you might expect, the impact of vitamin D. As pharmacists, much of our time with patients is spent dealing with prescription drugs. Many of our patients focus more of their time and attention on non-drug therapies. We should provide patients with a source of reliable, evidence-based information on non-drug therapies to help ensure that patients make sound non-drug therapy decisions.
