Custom Medication Packaging, Dose by Dose!

Free Custom Medication PackagingDo you worry about your loved ones taking all of their medications and taking them correctly? According to medical experts, the average person over the age of 65 takes as many as seven prescriptions per day. Sadly, 125,000 elderly die each year due to medication mismanagement and many more are hospitalized.

K&K Pharmacy is proud to offer a new way to keep your loved ones safe and independent with K-Pack Custom Medication Packaging.

With K-Pack Custom Medication Packaging, K&K Pharmacy utilizes a high-tech robot to automatically sort, organize and pack your loved ones’ medications. Each patient’s medications are packaged in clear, individually sealed, easy-to-open packets in one continuous strip per month. Each dosage packet lists the patient name, date, dosage time, instructions and medications contained. This technology virtually eliminates the possibility of a missed dose or spilled vials with pills lost down the kitchen sink. The patient (or caregiver) may simply refer to the next packet on the strip for the next dosing time and instructions.

Our pharmacists also perform a monthly medication double check. We’ll check with the patient (or caregiver), the doctor and the pharmacy for any medication changes or additions – ensuring timely refills and adherence to physician treatments. Our monthly medication double check also provides an opportunity to screen for any potentially dangerous drug interactions or duplicate therapies.

K&K Pharmacy will contact your physician for refills, when necessary, and deliver your custom packed prescriptions to your home or work place – at appropriate or no additional charge. Over-the-counter and natural supplements can also be included.

If you would like your medications better organized, we would be happy to assist!

Proper foot care is an important part of diabetic management. In fact, diabetics are at an extremely increased risk of serious foot disorders. Foot problems are the most common diabetes complication leading to hospitalizations. Foot ulcers can be caused by improper shoe gear that can result in an infection and possible amputation. Studies show that well-fitted diabetic shoes with moldable insoles reduce the development of ulcers.

Take a minute to review the following statistics:

  • Diabetics are 46 times more likely to have an amputation.
  • 26.7% will have another amputation within one year of the first one.
  • 48.3% will have another amputation within three years of the first one.
  • 60.7% will have another amputation within five years of the first one.
  • 50% of all diabetics die within 3 years of an amputation.
  • 65% of all diabetics die within 5 years of an amputation.

Medicare realized the need to reduce the incidence of diabetic foot complications that can result in expensive hospitalizations. For this reason, Medicare will cover this service for those patients with or without a history of foot complications.

Our diabetic foot program provides one pair of therapeutic depth shoes, three pairs of multi-density orthotic inserts, all custom fitted by our specially trained Certified Pedorthis. We offer many different shoe styles from several different companies, including Aetrex, Dr. Comfort, and Anodyne. Patients can choose from a traditional walking tennis shoe, casual or dressy shoes.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

With the hormone replacement therapy (HRT) frequently being discussed in the media, it is difficult to know what to do, what is safe and what is best suited for you. At K&K Pharmacy, our pharmacists attend numerous conferences and workshops and have developed expertise in women’s health issues. They are available for 30 and 60 minute consultations.

Prior to the consultation, you will complete a hormone self assessment form. During the consultation the pharmacist will review your assessment and your current therapy. He/she will discuss treatment options that are available, make recommendations to you and your physician (if you request), and answer your questions. Our goal is to provide the most current and accurate information in order for you to make the best decisions regarding your healthcare.

Please contact a pharmacy staff member for more information or to schedule a consultation. To begin the process, please complete our online hormone self assessment form.

Hormone Self Assessment Form

Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fat, or lipid, that is important to the cell’s structure and it used to make a number of hormones. There are two sources of your body’s cholesterol;

  1. (1) your liver makes cholesterol, the amount of which is determined by your genetics, and
  2. (2) the foods we eat contain varying amounts of cholesterol.
  3. It should come as no surprise, that high cholesterol levels are a significant risk factor for heart disease and stroke. This is primarily due to cholesterol being deposited along the walls of arteries forming plaques and eventually blockages. There are two Lipoproteins (carrier molecules) that are responsible for transporting cholesterol in the body; HDL and LDL. HDL, sometimes called “good cholesterol”, because it can carry cholesterol back to the liver where it can be degraded and excreted. LDL is considered “bad cholesterol”, because it can carry cholesterol from the liver into the blood vessels and deposit it on the vessel walls.

Desirable Lipid Levels:

  • Total Cholesterol <200mg ⁄ dL
  • HDL >40mg ⁄ dL
  • LDL <130mg ⁄ dL
  • Triglycerides <150mg ⁄ dL
  • Total Cholesterol ⁄ HDL Ratio 4.5 or less
  • Glucose (fasting) 60-110mg ⁄ dL

At K&K Pharmacy, we use a Cholestech LDX machine (that uses slightly more than 1 drop of blood) to determine your lipid profile. The machine tests for Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and Glucose. The machine further calculates a Total Cholesterol/HDL ratio. The test takes approximately 15 minutes and you will be provided with written results which you can share with your physician. It is generally recommended that lipid profiles be performed when the patient has been fasting for 8 hours (triglyceride levels can be altered significantly by what you have recently eaten).

Lipid Profiles (Cholesterol Screenings) are performed by appointment. Please call to schedule an appointment or if you have additional questions.

What is salivary hormone testing?

Salivary hormone testing involves taking a sample of saliva and assaying the saliva for sex hormones levels. The hormones that can be tested are estrone (e1), estradiol (e2), estriol (e3), progesterone, testosterone, DHEA (dehydroepiandosterone) and cortisol.

Why test the saliva and not blood?

Sex hormones act on specific receptors sites in various places in the body. A protein in the blood called SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) is the carrier molecule that acts as the transporter for all sex hormones. However, hormone that is bound to SHBG is not considered active since it is bound. Unbound or free hormone is the only hormone that can attach to receptor site and cause an effect. Traditional blood testing measures the amount of hormone bound to SHBG which is not active. Hormone levels measured in saliva are unbound/free and therefore active. By testing saliva clinicians get a more accurate picture of what is going on.

Other advantages of saliva testing include that it less invasive, no needle stick. It is more convenient, the patient can produce the sample in their own home and not have to make a special trip to the lab. Ultimately, the greatest benefit is that it allows the patient to be a participant in their own healthcare.

How does it all work?

First you need to decide which hormones to test for, either consult with your physician or one of our pharmacists can counsel you. The pharmacy will provide you with a test kit (you will pay the pharmacy for the testing). At your convenience, you will produce a saliva sample (usually first thing in the morning). The kit comes with a shipping label and box to ship it in. Drop the box at any UPS pick-up site. In approximately two weeks, the lab will send the pharmacy your results. One of our pharmacists will review and help you interpret the results. You can either take the lab findings with you or we can send them to your physician.

What Is Venous Insufficiency?

Venous insufficiency is a condition in which the valves of the veins fail to function. This interferes with venous return to the heart and causes blood to pool in the vein. Factors leading to venous insufficiency include venous stasis, changes or damage to the vein wall or valve.

Venous insufficiency can lead to varicose veins, phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, blood clots, and changes in the skin, including leg ulcers.

Why Compression Works.

Compression therapy is the application of external pressure to the limb to reduce venous pressure within the limb. This means wearing socks or stockings that are specially designed to support your veins and increase circulation. To be most effective, the socks or stockings should be put on at the start of your day and removed before you go to bed.

Remember that the heart attempts to pump blood against gravity up the veins of the legs. As a person walks, the regular contraction and relaxation of the calf muscles around the veins are necessary to help move blood towards the heart.

Some people have an inherited weakness of the vein walls or valves which create additional challenges to venous circulation. Wearing compression socks or stockings is vital for the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and other circulatory problems, especially for individuals who are at risk.

See one of our staff members for assistance with compression therapy.
