Bayer's A1CNow SELFCHECK, cleared by the Food and Drug Administration last year, is the first and only system of its kind with at-home results in five minutes. It enables patients to more closely watch their A1C level in between doctor visits so they may have a more informed discussion with their healthcare provider to ensure their diabetes plan is working.

Measuring A1C levels is important for diabetes management, as even a one-percent point reduction in A1C may lower the risk of complications by up to 40 percent.(1)

"A1C testing is an important measure of long-term diabetes management," said Olivier Jarry, Chief Operating Officer for Bayer Diabetes Care. "Bayer's A1CNow SELFCHECK provides patients with a new way to partner with their healthcare providers to help meet their blood sugar goals over time."

A1CNow SELFCHECK complements the healthcare provider-administered A1C test but is not intended to replace it or routine blood glucose testing. Bayer's A1CNow SELFCHECK, when used in conjunction with blood glucose meters, such as Bayer's CONTOUR® or BREEZE®2 blood glucose meters, lets people with diabetes know where they stand with respect to their treatment goals.

A1CNow SELFCHECK comes as a 2-test-kit for a suggested sale price of $29.99. Fo
