Making significant changes in nutrition and lifestyle can have a significant impact on chronic conditions. That's according to LloydsPharmacy who have teamed up with RediCare to give customers in Cork access to a new digital therapeutic service, RediCare ControlDTx.

The service helps treat type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol ratios, and in so doing, reduce risk of heart disease and other chronic conditions. This service offers those looking to transform their health a programme that supports participants through every stage of making long-lasting lifestyle changes.

RediCare ControlDTx provides participants with the tools and support needed to develop healthy habits that will make a positive long-lasting impact on their health. Unlimited one-to-one health consultations, a range of recipes, dietary advise, and an online support forum are just some of the many key features designed to empower change, and treat chronic health conditions such as:

• Overweight and obese conditions

• High blood pressure

• High cholesterol

• Pre and type 2 diabetes


Registration is extremely easy, just pop into any LloydsPharmacy in Cork. The programme can then be accessed online anywhere, at any time and costs €50 for six months.

Dr Niall Colwell, consultant cardiologist, spoke about the programmes benefits: “Digital therapeutics are a new class of therapy where software is applied to medicine to deliver a therapeutic, with a clinically proven result. RediCare ControlDTx is a great asset to LloydsPharmacy customers and the people of Cork and will give them the opportunity to prevent, manage, or treat chronic disease such as overweight or obese conditions, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure or combinations of both.

“The results are impressive, and I encourage anyone struggling with their health to get on board as soon as possible. Living with chronic conditions can be a daily struggle but RediCare ControlDTx is the support that can help people make a transformation to a much healthier way of living.”

LloydsPharmacy Superintendent Pharmacist Denis O’Driscoll said: “Together with RediCare ControlDTx we are delighted we can now exclusively offer our patients in Cork a service that can help manage and control their chronic illness. The programme is tailored to each patient’s individual needs and can be accessed online anywhere at any time meaning it can easily fit with people’s own lifestyles.”
