Our Mission


MELLIsim's mission is to provide an effective solution for the care of Type 2 Diabetic (T2D) patients. Diabetes is a serious condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high. There are several types of diabetes, mostly Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients need several insulin doses per day as soon as they are diagnosed. T2D is far more common than T1D: 90% of all adults with diabetes have type 2. One adult out of twelve is affected by T2D.

T2D patients are usually diagnosed in their forties and most of them will experience a deterioration in their condition throughout their lifetime as they usually fail to reach normal glycemic control. When T2D patients are diagnosed, they are initially treated with oral antidiabetic medication and later with one insulin injection per day. It usually gets worse over time and T2D patients will eventually require several insulin injections per day like T1D patients.

​​In 2017, 425 million people suffered from diabetes. This number is expected to increase by 50% in 2045. 90% of these patients are Type 2 patients. Approximately 11% of them do not reach adequate glycemic control using oral medications alone, and receive one injection of insulin per day. Despite the insulin treatment, 70% of them still fail to reach adequate  glycemic control, which means 33 million patients worldwide are still in crucial need of new solutions.

Our mission is to radically change the care of diabetic patients with one insulin injection per day.
