Diabetes is a major health problem in New Zealand, and we are proud to provide a range of state-of-the-art blood glucose meters, support products and software to consumers and healthcare professionals, to help people with diabetes to control their disease and improve their health and well being.
We go beyond merely supplying products. We recognise that managing diabetes can be challenging. To help people with diabetes and healthcare professionals who use our diabetes products our call centre is available 24/7 where people can talk with our support staff, who listen to and help with product enquiries. We also have a team of company representatives who educate healthcare professionals about our products and provide product support nationwide.

New Zealand Sock Company
Pharmaco is pleased to partner with New Zealand Sock Company which makes LifeSocks™, an innovative New Zealand brand of socks. Representing years of research into podiatry health, LifeSocks™ are made from a unique blend of natural fibres including merino wool, and are designed to aid circulation, avoid compression and ensure a healthy, comfortable environment for feet. These features can be beneficial for the feet of people with diabetes. Currently we are exploring this opportunity in selected areas in New Zealand.
An innovative medical device invented by a leading diabetes specialist in the UK, Vibratip™ is designed to help healthcare professionals diagnose diabetic neuropathy, a condition whereby patients with diabetes lose sensation in their feet, making them prone to ulceration and increasing the risk of eventual limb amputation. Pharmaco sells this innovative diagnostic tool to diabetes healthcare professionals.
