Diabetes is an ongoing journey in which a healthy diet, stable blood sugar levels and regular exercise are paramount to ensuring you maintain a balanced lifestyle. If you’re a person living with type 2 diabetes, you probably understand the importance of this balance better than most.
Of course, sometimes life with diabetes can be a challenge and you might occasionally feel like you’re heading a bit off course. So, it’s a good idea to have a few tricks up your sleeve to give yourself a helping hand along the way, starting with a snack you can count on!
One of the first things you learn in diabetes education is to make sure you have a snack with you at all times to avoid blood sugar levels decreasing to below normal, ie hypoglycaemia, or a ‘hypo’. While nobody ever intends to find themselves in a hypo, sometimes this can be a reality. You might accidentally skip a meal or make a poor food choice, which then affects your blood sugar levels. And if you can’t find a diabetic-friendly snack on the go, things can go downhill fast.
Fortunately, there’s a simple way to ensure you get the nutrition you need from a snack, when and where you need it. Glucerna® is a delicious health shake formulated especially for the nutritional needs of people with diabetes or with impaired glucose tolerance. It is nutritionally complete and balanced and comes in two formats: a convenient 200mL ready-to-drink bottle and an 850g powder that’s quick and easy to prepare – just add water!3
What’s in it?
Glucerna is scientifically formulated, with:
- Slow-release carbohydrates which help manage blood sugar levels.3
- Healthy fats such as omega-3s which help support a healthy heart.2

How does it work?
The slow-release carbohydrates in Glucerna help minimise spikes in blood glucose levels. When consumed as a shake or in the ready-to-drink format, Glucerna offers balanced nutrition in the form of a healthy snack, to help manage your blood glucose levels.
