Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by high blood sugar levels that stem from inappropriate production or use of insulin. Nearly 30 million Americans and 400 million people worldwide have diabetes. Ninety percent of these individuals have type 2 diabetes and are often treated with basal insulin. Despite being provided with effective medications, more than half of them do not meet the recommended targets for glycemic control. Major contributing factors include challenges with insulin initiation and titration. Owing to the complications associated with diabetes, its total annual cost in the US amounts to $300 billion.

The cost saving opportunity in the U.S is estimated to be $4,690 per patient per year.
