The development of diabetes has become a common global health issue, largely due to increases in overweight, obesity and physical inactivity. Long-term complications such as cardiovascular disease, renal failure, retinopathy and neuropathy follow close behind. The prerequisite in handling diabetes is early detection. The symptoms of diabetes are however, not always obvious – sometimes they pass unnoticed. Reliable and sensitive systems for diagnosing, screening and monitoring are key for good care.
HemoCue contribute to provide accurate point-of-care testing (POCT) systems for glucose. A system from HemoCue is sensitive enough for diagnosing, screening and monitoring of diabetes Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes.
