We know that even with the best of medicines, it can be hard for people with diabetes to reach and stay at goal. Since we introduced the first commercially available insulin in 1923, the needs of people with diabetes have continually inspired us to innovate and introduce pathways to better outcomes.

We believe that when it comes to helping people achieve those outcomes, efficacy and safety are critical. We also understand that simplicity and ease of use are just as important.

For a person with diabetes, achieving a goal can be hard. Understanding and taking a medicine should not be.
