Roche Diabetes Care

Roche Diabetes Care’s products are all designed with the same basic aims in mind: to help people with diabetes live healthy, productive lives and to make managing diabetes easier. Monitoring systems with integrated lancets and test strips and software for storing and analyzing data are an increasingly important part of Roche’s diabetes care portfolio because they improve glycemic (blood glucose) control for many users, in addition to offering greater convenience. Activities aimed at integrating glucose monitoring and data management with insulin delivery are ongoing and may one day result in systems that closely mimic the way the healthy pancreas regulates blood glucose levels.
