The Bayer Story
Bayer Diabetes Care - Simplifying Life with Diabetes
Bayer HealthCare Diabetes Care is a leader in diabetes monitoring systems and other products and services that simplify life for people with diabetes and healthcare professionals.
In the U.S., only Bayer makes available a complete line of single and multi-testing blood glucose meters (BGM) including the BREEZE®2 and CONTOUR® systems. Both have No Coding™ technology and no interference with maltose, as well as automatic compensation for many common interfering substances such as acetaminophen and vitamin C. Minimizing the impact from many external variants helps to ensure accuracy of test results. Bayer is the only leading diabetes care company to offer hand-held, portable monitoring of A1C (glycated hemoglobin), an important indicator of long-term blood sugar control. Products include the A1CNow+® for healthcare professionals and the A1CNow™ SELFCHECK at-home A1C system.
A Legacy of Innovation
These state-of-the-art monitors plus a host of lifestyle support tools offered by Bayer continue its legacy of innovation, begun forty years ago when Bayer Diabetes Care launched the first blood glucose monitor. Bayer’s invention of the BGM is an important contribution to diabetes care because BGMs have empowered patients to take a greater role in diabetes management, while at home, work, anywhere – a true simple win. Regular self monitoring of blood glucose is key to achieving tight glycemic control and minimizing the risk of diabetes-related complications.
A Vision of Simplicity
Today, the company is still inventing -- and reinventing -- blood glucose monitoring, re-launching its product portfolio and investing in the research and development of breakthrough products and services, always striving to deliver on the vision of simplifying life with diabetes.
Today, transformational products in the Bayer Diabetes Care pipeline hold the possibility of a whole new experience for people with diabetes, one where they use monitors and lifestyle support to gain deeper and more insightful knowledge to make informed decisions, and take action. As the company’s products and services transform and evolve, Bayer Diabetes Care’s mission will remain constant: touching lives and fulfilling the goal of making simple, positive, daily difference for people with diabetes……daily simplewins® that add up to meaningful victories over time.
