Phamac to the Rescue of Diabetics
Diabetes is on the rise in New Zealand. Hence Pharmac decided to fund for the new once-a-day insulin for those who have serious fluctuations in blood sugar level.

It has decided to give Insulin Glargine or Lantus at a subsidized rate from July 1.

He also said that the insulin would not be provided for all the patients who were suffering from Type 1 diabetes.

Lantus would be provided only for those suffering from serious conditions which are life threatening and would be given especially to the young people.
