How does Glucerna SR™ work?

Diabetes is a disease in which the body is not able to use nutrients normally. This results in high levels of glucose in the blood, which can damage tissues and cells. To control glucose levels, people with diabetes must usually follow a healthy diet (among other management techniques), but it's not always easy.

Clinical studies show that the slowly digested carbohydrate system in Glucerna SR™ results in lower postprandial blood glucose levels when compared to ordinary bars and drinks. The heart-healthy fat blend (high MUFA, low SFA)* helps promote lower lipid levels, an important factor in cardiac health. The complete range of vitamins and minerals supports overall good health. And Glucerna SR™ Liquid and Powders are available in a range of flavors for a convenient low calorie meal or snack.
