Transforming Diabetes Care Together, For Greater Freedom And Better Health


For more than 30 years, Medtronic has been helping people with diabetes.

Medtronic is working with the global community to change the way people manage diabetes. Together, we will transform diabetes care by expanding access, integrating care and improving outcomes, so people with diabetes can enjoy greater freedom and better health.

Under the leadership of Hooman Hakami, Executive Vice President and President of the Diabetes Group, we operate three global business units to serve customers worldwide.


  • The Advanced Insulin Management (AIM) Business Unit: The AIM business unit is focused on serving patients in need of insulin pump therapy. This business unit will work to drive increased automation to our pump platform to maximize the time people are within a set target glucose range, and ultimately work to develop a fully automated, closed loop system.
  • The Multiple Daily Injection Solutions (MDIS) Business Unit: This business unit will deliver innovative solutions that address unmet needs for people with both type 1 and 2 diabetes who rely on multiple daily injections to manage their diabetes. This business will focus on empowering people with diabetes to achieve better outcomes with smart, connected solutions.
  • The Non-Intensive Diabetes Therapies (NDT) Business Unit: The NDT business unit is focused on addressing the needs of patients with type 2 diabetes who do not use intensive insulin regimens and provides solutions along the diabetes care continuum. The NDT team, working together with our partners, people with diabetes, providers, and payers, is focused on developing products and solutions that provide personalized therapy adjustments that may reduce glucose variability and improve A1C1,2,3,4,5.
