Diabetes affects 25.8 million people or 8.3% of the U. S. population.
With such a high percentage of individuals affected by diabetes, Michelle's Pharmacy offers dedicated services to streamline diabetic care and maintenance. We offer a complete line of products including:
- Blood and glucose meters
- Test strips
- Injection supplies
We are pleased to offer Dr. Comfort Shoes and custom inserts for our diabetic patients. Our products are for those at risk, and provide uncompromising comfort, quality, and style for anyone looking for a great pair of shoes & custom inserts. Proper footwear can help prevent more serious complications for those at risk of diabetes. If you qualify, Medicare will cover most of the cost, and your additional private insurance plans may help cover the remaining portion that Medicare doesn't cover. A prescription from your primary care physician is required for Medicare and/or insurance. Dr. Comfort Diabetic Socks and Compression Hose are also available.
Dr. Comfort shoes are also available for those without diabetes who are simply seeking sturdy, comfortable shoes at cash pricing. Dozens to choose from including leather and athletic styles and boots.

Diabetes symptoms include:
- Frequent thirst and passing of water
- Feeling tired or lethargic
- Blurry vision
- Cramps, often at night
- High rate of infections
- Numbness in hands or feet
