A shake is an ideal way to get nutrition in a delicious and convenient way. There are many meal and snack replacement shakes from which you can choose. A diabetes-specific nutrition shake formula is designed to help people with diabetes manage blood sugar. This formula contains a more balanced ratio of nutrients—higher in monounsaturated fat and lower in carbohydrate with inclusion of fiber. A standard nutrition shake formula is designed to supplement a person’s diet but is higher in carbohydrate, low in fat, and low in fiber, which has been shown to compromise blood sugar control.1
Splenda Diabetes Care Shakes contain a diabetes-specific nutrition formula that has the right nutrient balance with 16 grams of high-quality protein, 15 grams of carbohydrate including 6 grams of fiber, and 6 grams of monounsaturated fats.
A thorough scientific review showed that diabetes-specific nutrition shake formulas when compared with standard nutrition shake formulas significantly reduced blood sugar rise after eating in people with diabetes.1
People with diabetes have higher than normal blood sugar levels. If not properly controlled, these high blood sugars can cause complications, such as nerve damage, vision loss, and kidney disease. Taking your diabetes medications prescribed by your doctor, getting regular exercise, and following a nutritionally-balanced meal plan can help prevent these complications.2
