Glucerna® 1.0 Cal

Glucerna® 1.0 Cal


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.

Preparation

  • Instructions for Use: Ready-To-Hang Container

    All liquid medical foods, regardless of type of administration system, require careful handling because they can support microbial growth. Follow these instructions for clean technique and proper setup to reduce the potential for microbial contamination. NOTE: Failure to follow the Instructions for Use increases the potential for microbial contamination and reduces hangtime.
    • Pump feeding is recommended; use an 8 Fr or larger tube. If gravity feeding use a 10 Fr or larger tube.
    • Administer product at room temperature.
    • THOROUGHLY wash hands with soap and water before handling container or feeding set.
    • Turn container upside down and SHAKE VIGOROUSLY, using a twisting motion for at least 10 seconds.
    • DO NOT touch any part of the container or feeding set that comes into contact with the formula.
    • When initiating feeding, follow physician's instructions. Adjust flow rate and volume according to patient's condition and tolerance.
    • Additional fluid requirements should be met by giving water between or after feedings or when flushing the tube.
    • Always follow directions for use provided with feeding set.

    For Use with Enteral Feeding Set:
    • Remove the dust cover from the Abbott RTH Safety Screw Cap.
    • Remove the dust cover from the safety connector on the feeding set.
    • Insert the safety connector into the port on the Abbott RTH Safety Screw Cap, completely pierce foil.
    • Turn the safety connector clockwise until it is securely fastened.
    • Close clamp on set before inverting container.
    • Invert container and suspend, using the hanging ring on the bottom of the container.
    • Unless a shorter hang time is specified by the set manufacturer, hang product for up to 48 hours after initial connection when clean technique and only one new set are used. Otherwise hang for no more than 24 hours.


    • Instructions for Use: 8-fl-oz-can
