Specialized nutrition with fiber for abnormal glucose tolerance

  • GLUCERNA 1.0 CAL is a reduced-carbohydrate, modified-fat, fiber-containing formula clinically shown to blunt blood-glucose response in patients with abnormal glucose tolerance.1,2,3 GLUCERNA 1.0 CAL provides only 34.3% of total calories as carbohydrate. This helps minimize glycemic response. The formulation includes soy fiber to help maintain normal bowel function.
  • For patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
  • For patients with abnormal glucose tolerance resulting from metabolic stress, such as illness, trauma, or infection.
  • For supplemental or total nutrition.
  • For tube feeding.
  • 8-fl-oz cans with mild vanilla flavor can be used orally as well as for tube feeding.
  • Use under medical supervision.
