With more than 440 million people worldwide living with diabetes there is a genuine need to find ways to reduce the impact of the condition, and improve the quality of life for those diagnosed. The good news is that significant advances have been made in dietary management of diabetes, specifically in premeal drinks that help people manage or avoid type 2 diabetes.
Diabetics know that keeping to a strict diet and exercise regimen is the best way to manage their condition, but in the real world that can be difficult, with temptation all around us. There are social occasions to navigate, cultural events to participate in, and even the strictest of routines can be disrupted by travel and changes in time zones. In addition, we live in an age where we enjoy a hugely varied diet, which again can make it difficult for people with diabetes to avoid the damage done by each spike in blood sugar after meals.
Minimising these spikes is essential for the successful management of diabetes, and Faulding GlucoControl makes this possible. Designed for people with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes, it is a unique, tasty premeal drink concept that blunts these spikes and allows people to better manage their diabetes. Used as part of a proper management plan that includes appropriate calorie control, it can give real peace of mind to people trying their best to manage diabetes.
When people are not in a position to follow best-practice advice regarding food due to circumstance, Faulding GlucoControl allows people to turn high-GI load meals into lower-GI load meals. Simply put, it reduces the blood-glucose impact of the meal by over one third, taking away the spikes that over time do all the damage.
The vanilla-flavoured drink comes in single-serve sachets you add to half a cup of water (150mL) in a shaker or a glass and shake or mix before drinking, up to half an hour before a meal. It contains dairy proteins and vegetable-fibre extracts, and a single dose provides a good source of healthy protein and soluble fibre.
Researched and developed in Australia, Faulding GlucoControl is the first non-pharmaceutical product to have proven scientific benefits in type 2 diabetes patients. As a medical-nutrition product, it is a food for a specific medical purpose, and with top nutrition researchers and institutions validating it, it is set to make a real difference in the real lives of people with diabetes. In addition, research has shown that by reducing the blood-glucose spike following a meal using a unique premeal drink, people also see changes in their underlying blood glucose over time, so the benefits are both immediate and long term.
