Nutren Diabetes Review – Is it good for diabetes patients?
We will review Nutren Diabetes and see how it compares to the other alternate: Abbott Nutrient’s Glucerna Triple Care. We will check out the nutrient value and whether it helps with diabetes patients. And we will also survey if the tastes suit most consumers’ taste buds and also whether it is friendly on the wallet. Firstly, caretakers should note that diabetes can lead to ups and downs in blood glucose and energy levels.
Acute fluctuations in blood glucose levels are associated with cardiovascular complications in patients with type 2 diabetes. When blood glucose falls between meals, patients with diabetes may feel less energetic. Glycaemic Index (GI) is a measure of the carbohydrate quality of food. Feeling less energetic can lead to snacking, particularly on energy-dense, high GI foods. Foods with a high GI can increase blood glucose fluctuations.
Can non-diabetes people drink Nutren Diabetes Liquid (or powder)?
It can be taken as a meal supplement if prefer low-sugar meal replacement. You have to check with your doctor or dietician as you may have underlying conditions that Nutren liquid may not be suitable for you. Nutren liquid and Nutren powder are specifically designed for people with prediabetes, diabetes, or people trying to manage their blood sugar. Do check with your dietician or doctor for your case as you may have different underlying conditions. Nutren products are intended to be used under medical supervision as a part of a diabetes management plan.

In our surveys, we have found out that in taste preferences, there are more people who prefer the tastes of Nutren Diabetes to Glucerna Triple Care, but the difference is not very large. It tastes smoother. Some of our clients do feedback that it is slightly costlier than the Nutren Diabetes. Also, perhaps due to the media advertisement of Glucerna Triple Care, there is a greater awareness of Glucerna Triple Care compared to Nutren Diabetes. Many people are still not aware of this brand. We also like to highlight that there are 2 Nutren Diabetes products available. The Nutren Diabetes powder is more affordable and can be mixed easily with water, the concentration of the drink depends on how many scoops you like to add to the drink as a snack between meals, or as a meal replacement itself.
