Simply fill in a brief questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order and prescribe a suitable treatment. How to Order

Type 2 diabetes is a condition that means your body can’t control your blood sugar levels well. This can have a big impact on your health.

The most commonly prescribed medication for type 2 diabetes is called Metformin. It isn’t a cure but can help to lower your blood sugar levels so they’re in a safe range.

Please note: where a generic product has been ordered we may use a range of manufacturers to provide you with your medication, in order to maintain our service levels.



Who can get treatment online?

You could be able to get treatment online if you:

  • are at least 18 years old with a formal diagnosis of type 2 diabetes
  • are already taking a stable dose of metformin: this shouldn’t have been changed in at least the last 6 months
  • have had your blood sugar checked in the last 6 months (HbA1c blood test)
  • have had a diabetic check in the last 6 months
  • have had your kidney function checked in the last 6 months (eGFR blood test)

How to place an order

Ordering with us is a simple process that only needs you to take a few steps:

  1. Fill out a short online assessment about your health and lifestyle
  2. Select the treatment option you’d like, e.g. metformin
  3. One of the doctors at ZAVA will check your assessment answers to make sure that the medication is appropriate for you
  4. If your medication is approved, you can choose how to receive it; you can have it posted to your address or you can collect it from a nearby post office instead

  • heartburn
  • stomach pain
  • nausea/vomiting
  • bloating
  • gas

One of the aspects about dealing with ZAVA that was a pleasure was how they always answered their phones in a short space of time allowing me to talk directly to a knowledgeable person who could give me good advice, when you add this to the prompt efficient service it made a great change to deal with a responsive organisation who understood my concerns and issues.
