Nordic Infucare: Products and support for insulin-treated diabetes
Diabetes – what is it?
Diabetes is a collective name for several different diseases that result in the glucose content (sugar content) in the blood being too high.
Type 1 diabetes is when the body’s own production of insulin (that regulates glucose levels in the blood) stops working completely or almost completely for an unknown reason, which means that insulin needs to be continually supplied.
Type 2 diabetes (which used to be called adult-onset diabetes) is when the body can still produce insulin, but the amount is too low for the body’s needs.
One common goal for both kinds of diseases is to maintain the most even level of glucose possible. CGM technology (continual glucose monitoring) with alarms – Dexcom – is an effective aid that makes it easier to gain better control of glucose values.
Nordic Infucare distributes Dexcom in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland and provides comprehensive support and training.
