Better patient outcomes with high-performing diabetes assays Chemistry and immunoassay results you can count on 

An estimated 463 million adults worldwide have diabetes with approximately 50% undiagnosed. By 2045, this number will rise to over 700 million.1 Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Early diagnoses and routine lifetime monitoring are critical to minimize the risk of developing other life-threatening health conditions.

The diagnosis of diabetes is made primarily by the detection of hyperglycemia, but there are many diagnostic testing options available. Diabetes-related assays are performed for various reasons on many different types of patients. The broad diabetes test menu from Siemens Healthineers is used as an aid in the diagnosis of diabetes, identification of those at risk, differentiation of type 1 from type 2 diabetes, monitoring of the diabetic’s glycemic control, and in tracking of the progression of the disease.
