(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – ISN Medical, a foremost supplier of medical diagnostics products in Nigeria, is rising to the challenge posed by COVID-19 to patients with underlying health conditions.
In order to augment the treatment of COVID-19 patients living with diabetes, ISN is donating over 20,000 packs of Accu-Chek test strips and over 5,000 Accu-Chek glucometers to Hospitals, the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), DAN groups, Paediatric Diabetic Groups and other recipients. These items are being distributed across the federation based on the number of COVID-19 cases per region.
Accu-Chek is a leading provider of blood sugar monitoring systems and insulin pumps; with more than 40 years of experience in helping people living with diabetes to track and manage their blood sugar levels so that they have better control of their health.
The donation of Accu-Chek diabetes management tools creates an avenue to better monitor the response of patients to treatment, respond quicker to changes in patients’ blood sugar levels and prevent the loss of more COVID-19 patients due to lack of adequate testing equipment.
ISN is strongly committed to supporting the fight against COVID-19 and enjoins people living with diabetes to maintain a healthy diet, test their blood sugar levels regularly and observe precautionary measures to avoid being infected with the novel coronavirus.
