Life-changing careers

Every 10 seconds, somewhere in the world, two people develop diabetes and one person dies from diabetes-related complications. This makes diabetes one of the leading causes of death across the globe. The disease currently affects more than 366 million people and this number is expected to grow to 520 million by 2030. We are committed to changing diabetes.

Novo Nordisk is the world leader in diabetes care. Founded 89 years ago, we have pioneered many therapeutic breakthroughs in diabetes care. Today, diabetes remains our primary focus, accounting for almost 75% of total sales.

In addition to diabetes, we have a leading position within biopharmaceuticals i.e. the therapeutic areas of haemostasis management, growth hormone therapy and hormone replacement therapy.
