Lifespan’s vision is to help Indians win over their diabetes and to achieve this, it has started a #WinOverDiabetesIndia initiative which is jointly steered by The Times of India.

Lifespan plans to reach further by screening 50,000 diabetes and pre-diabetes across many cities in India. Lifespan has introduced ‘Lifespan Measure Gold Glucose Meter’ – one of the world’s most accurate and reliable glucose monitors with low cost strips.
