Vitamins/Oils

Vitamins can supplement a deficiency that otherwise cannot be overcome with diet alone. In many cases, such as with Vitamin D deficiency due to a lack of exposure to sunshine, the only practical way to boost levels may be with a vitamin supplement. Many illnesses, disorders, and health related trauma or conditions are also improved through supplemental use of vitamins. If your health care provider has indicated you should take vitamins, you can rely on Fonte's to supply what you need.

Prenatal Products and Postnatal Products

Fonte's carries a variety of prenatal products and postnatal products, including vitamins, manual and electric breast pumps, and different style back supports and support belly bands.

Diabetic Supplies and Foot Care

Diabetic supplies include test strips, monitors for detecting and analyzing each blood sample to ensure accurate results. Monitors come in a variety of models, from small, lightweight, pocket-size monitors to robust devices with additional features.

Prescription diabetic footwear can help prevent more serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes. Foot problems effect your mobility and quality of life.  Come in and see our display of Dr. Comfort brand diabetic slippers and shoes. They are specially fitted and made to help those with diabetes but can also help people with arthritis, Morton's Neuroma, plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis. Dr. Comfort footwear comes in all kinds of designs: sporty, dress, casual and work styles, with your choice of shoe laces or velcro closures.

Medicare and supplemental insurance may reimburse for all or part of the cost of Dr. Comfort shoes and prescription inserts for diabetics who meet certain general criteria. A qualified health professional can determine if you are eligible.

If you suffer from diabetes or have any foot health concerns, we strongly encourage you to see a foot health professional to ensure all of your foot health needs are properly addressed.

Compression Stockings

We also carry compression stockings and diabetic socks for those with leg swelling. To have your feet measured, we recommend that you stop by in the morning, Monday through Friday, to get measured for the correct size.  Measuring feet early in the morning before they swell is the best way to get a perfect fit. Spenco and Pinnacle brand arch supports and orthotic supports are also always in stock.


Stockings and Compression Wear

Compression garments are pieces of clothing, such as socks, pantyhose, sleeves, etc., that provide support that is especially useful for people who have to stand for long periods, people with poor circulation or those prone to swelling and pain in their limbs. They are designed differently than traditional garments. For example, unlike traditional socks and hosiery, compression socks and stockings are tightest at the ankle with decreasing compression higher up the leg to promote an upward flow of blood.

Garments can come in varying degrees of compression. The higher degrees require a doctor's prescription. Compression garments worn on the legs can help prevent deep vein thrombosis and reduce swelling.

Compression sportswear is also worn by athletes during exercise to prevent chafing and rashes, and can be worn post-exercise to ease muscle stiffness and quicken recovery time.

Digital Scales

Fonte's offers a variety of digital scales that are accurate, easy to ready, and help you monitor and manage your weight over time.

Some digital scales also have additional capabilities that allow you to sync data with other health devices and apps so you can track progress against dietary and fitness changes. If you are concerned with unwanted weight gain, a digital scale can help you track your goals.

Drug Testing Kits

Drug testing kits are designed for quick, simple testing for a multitude of chemicals in a urine sample, such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, opiates, and other illicit and prescription drugs. The drug testing kits we sell are FDA approved, reliable, and are designed for both at work or at home use - giving you accurate results in a matter of minutes. Testing for the presence of a drug can help you have necessary conversations about drug use, which can then help reduce the risk of addiction.
