Glucerna: Ask the Diabetes Experts!

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Want good news first? I've been taking the Glucerna meal replacement thing a try and I did lose 2 inches off my waist. I haven't really changed my diet but that's already a good thing because I've been wanting to wear fitter clothes especially because it's summer. We're gonna get there somehow. 

I haven't really checked with a real doctor about having diabetes but I have a hunch that I'll probably have it soon as I've been doomed getting it from Mom and Dad. I learned though that my assumption had basis but of course I could actually prolong or also not have it, there's always a chance. Dr. Sjoberg Kho of the Philippine Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism who hails from UST's Faculty of Medicine and Surgery says the way to go is lifestyle intervention. This includes special nutrition which could later delay or even prevent the onset of prediabetes and your being at risk. Clinical trials have already shown that Gluccerna Triple Care has helped manage weight and reduce the risk of cardiovascular risk in diabetes. This coincides with a certified diabetes management plan that includes proper diet and physical exercise.

Dr. Jose Dimaano Jr., the current Medical Director of Abbot Nutrition Philippines adds that Glucerna Triple Care offers the unparalleled combination of managing blood sugar levels, supporting heart health and weight management. I've seen and felt how this happens, in my case I think my sugar absorption is lessened or totally blocked when taking Glucerna. This shows in excretions, but I'm not sure if that is actually caused by taking Glucerna during replacement periods. Although, it makes perfect sense if that is the effect. If you would like to take advantage of the Glucerna 1-2-3 challenge, download the apps from the App Store or Google Play or visit the website It's also going to hook you up with a loyalty rewards program every time you update your health profile and include your physical activities online. 

I've already taken some steps to follow the plan, how about you?!

P.S. Most people love the Chocolate flavor but I dig the Vanilla more! Make sure you have both at home so you can take whatever you want for that day!
