Bayer Diabetes Care Launches A1CNow(R) SELFCHECK, a New A1C Monitor for At-Home Use
Date:6/2/2009

Through Self A1C Testing, New Monitor Enables Diabetes Management Between Physician Visits

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer Diabetes Care announced today the launch of A1CNow(R) SELFCHECK, a new A1C monitor that enables people with diabetes to check their A1C level at home. Measurement of A1C provides an average assessment of blood sugar levels over the past three months -- and is an indicator of how well diabetes is being managed. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently cleared Bayer's A1CNow SELFCHECK which enables patients to more closely watch their A1C level in between healthcare provider visits so they may modify their diet and exercise, or have a more informed discussion with their healthcare provider based on the results.

A1CNow SELFCHECK, which is now available without a prescription and through leading online pharmacies, provides at-home results within five minutes, has an easy-to-use design and delivers lab accuracy. Measuring A1C levels is important for consistent diabetes management, as even a one-percent reduction in A1C reduces the risk of serious complications by 40 percent(1).

"A1C testing is an important measure of long-term diabetes management, however, some patients will skip having their A1C tested because they're worried about what their healthcare provider will say if their A1C levels are not good," said Steve Edelman, MD, founder and director, Taking Control of Your Diabetes. "A1CNow SELFCHECK is a new tool that allows people with diabetes to test their A1C level in the comfort and privacy of their own home, to get the information they need to manage their disease in-between healthcare provider visits."

At the healthcare provider's office patients can be tested with Bayer's A1CNow+ monitor, which provides results within five minutes, enabling physicians to evaluate their patients' overall diabetes control and discuss lifestyle and treatme
