Diabetes

Lilly has been a global leader in diabetes care since 1923, when we introduced the world's first commercial insulin. Today we are building upon this heritage by working to meet the diverse needs of people with diabetes and those who care for them. Through research, collaboration and quality manufacturing we strive to make life better for people impacted by diabetes. We offer a wide range of therapies and a continued determination to provide real solutions—from medicines and technologies to support programs and more. 

What Makes Us Unique 

  • In the lab, we’re working on new treatments for people with diabetes. 

  • At summer camps, we’re helping kids with diabetes discover they’re not alone. 

  • In developing countries around the world, we’re sharing our strength and passion with local governments and health care providers to create sustainable diabetes management programs that meet real needs.
