ISN Medical for more than 40 years has been in the business of supplying Hospitals, Clinics, Pharmacy outlets and Laboratories with the highest quality of Medical Diagnostics Products and Services in Nigeria. ISN is rising to the challenge posed by COVID-19 to patients living with Diabetes.

According to the World Health Organization, people with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, are at high risk of experiencing serious complications from COVID-19.

In order to augment the treatment of COVID-19 patients living with diabetes, ISN donated about 10,000 packs of Accu-Chek Active test strips and some Accu-Chek Active glucometers to the Four Lagos State Isolation Centers, LUTH Isolation Centre and about 45 DAN (Diabetes Association of Nigeria) groups/Branches across Nigeria.

ISN is doing its part to support COVID-19 patients living with diabetes by donating millions of Naira worth of Accu-Chek test strips and meters to both the Lagos State Government (LASG) response team on COVID-19 and the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) response team on COVID-19 to support improved monitoring of the patients’ blood glucose levels. This would help them achieve better control of their blood glucose levels, thereby reducing the risk of more severe complications from COVID-19.

The donation of Accu-Chek Active Kits will help patients living with Diabetes and Health Care Professionals to better monitor themselves and their patients, take the appropriate measures to ensure themselves and their patients respond quicker to changes in their blood sugar levels and prevent more cases of Covid-19 and more loss of patients due to the virus.

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.

Accu-Chek is the No.1 blood glucose monitoring system in the Nigerian market that fulfils the accuracy requirement of ISO 15197.2013 and has been available for patients to monitor, track and manage their blood glucose levels to achieve better control.
