Abstract:  This article is the second of a three-part series on diabetes from the perspective of the compounding pharmacist/diabetes-educator pharmacist. It addresses two complications of diabetes: diabetic neuropathy (ways to reduce risk factors and pharmacological treatments, including analgesics, oral anticonvulsants and transdermal gels), impotence and diabetic ulcers (glycemic control, other approaches and nifedipine in Pluronic lecithin organogel). Five compounds for treating diabetes are featured (a formula for beginning treatment for pain management, one for treating impotence, one for treating erectile dysfunction, one for treating topical ulcers and one for topical treatment to enhance circulation). A table provides information about drugs used in the featured formulations that can be used by the compounding pharmacist in compounding formulations for treating diabetes-related conditions. The author concludes that making other key members of the diabetes care team aware of his or her capabilities can result in a very successful practice for the compounding pharmacist and greatly improve quality of life for diabetes patients.
