In a press release statement, Wal-Mart and Eli Lilly and Company announced they''re teaming up to provide an affordable insulin option for people with diabetes. Beginning in mid-September, Lilly''s Humulin® brand of insulin will be available in Wal-Mart pharmacies across the U.S. under the dual-branded name Humulin® ReliOn®, including 10 mL vials of Humulin® R U-100, Humulin® N, and Humulin® 70/30 formulations. Nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes, up from 21 million in 2005, according to the American Diabetes Association. Of those, about a quarter (27 percent) use insulin to manage blood sugar levels. Along with Humulin® ReliOn® insulin, Wal-Mart also offers $9 diabetes management products, including the ReliOn Ultima Blood Glucose Meter, the ReliOn Ultima Blood Glucose Test Strips (20 ct) and the ReliOn A1c test (glycated hemoglobin).
