A Comprehensive Diabetes Program is more than monitoring known Diabetics

by Nov 28, 2018Healthcare

Diabetes is a leading cause of disability and death in the United States. It can result in blindness, kidney disease, nerve damage, and lowers life expectancy by 8.5 years. Roughly 84 million Americans are at risk of developing diabetes.1 Unfortunately, most glucose strip meters are only intended for monitoring known diabetics, and not cleared for use in the large population (84M) of at-risk prediabetics. Early detection is key!

HemoCue Can Help

How HemoCue Can Help:

  • The HemoCue® Glucose 201 Analyzer enables practices to test their entire at-risk patient population, not just known diabetics1. This can aid in early detection.
  • Our CLIA-waived HemoCue® Glucose 201 Analyzer indication for use states the analyzer results supplement the clinical evidence in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with diabetes.
  • On average reimbursement is ~48% higher than most glucose strip meters*.
