Glucerna® 1.2 Cal

Glucerna® 1.2 Cal


Specialized Nutrition for Enhanced Glycemic Control
  • GLUCERNA 1.2 CAL is a calorically dense formula that has CarbSteady®, a unique blend of carbohydrates, including slowly digestible carbohydrate clinically shown to help minimize blood glucose response,1 and fish oil to support cardiovascular health.
  • For patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
  • For patients with hyperglycemia/abnormal glucose tolerance resulting from metabolic stress, such as illness, trauma or infection.
  • For tube or oral feeding.
  • For supplemental or sole-source nutrition.
  • Use under medical supervision.
1 Alish C, et al. Diabetes Technol Ther 2010;12:419-425.

Features
  • GLUCERNA 1.2 CAL has been clinically shown to significantly reduce peak postprandial blood glucose response by 49 mg/dL (69%) and reduce glycemic variability versus a standard 1.2-Cal formulation in people with diabetes.1
  • At 1.2 Cal/mL, patient needs can be met with less volume.
  • 20% of calories from protein to promote anabolism and support wound healing.
  • Includes 10 g/L of NutraFlora® scFOS® (2.4 g/8 fl oz and 15 g/1.5 L).
  • 4% of total calories from saturated fatty acids and rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (28% of total calories), consistent with the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association guidelines.3
  • Provides plant-based omega-3 fatty acids from canola oil (3 g of ALA per 1500 Cal) and the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA (1 g per 1500 Cal) from fish oil consistent with American Heart Association reported levels to support cardiovascular health.4
  • Chromium picolinate, a more bioavailable form of chromium. Chromium is an essential nutrient important for carbohydrate metabolism.
  • 1500 Cal provide at least 100% of the DVs for 24 key vitamins and minerals.
  • Halal.
  • Kosher.
  • Gluten-free.
  • Suitable for lactose intolerance.
Feeding sets are for single-patient use only. Use clean technique to avoid set and or product contamination

Precautions

  • Not for IV use.
  • Not for people with galactosemia.

Preparation

  • Instructions for Use: 8-fl-oz can 
    • Store unopened at room temperature; avoid extreme temperatures.
    • Shake well. Glucerna 1.2 is ready to use.
    • Clean top of container thoroughly before opening.
    • Once opened, cover, refrigerate and use within 48 hours.

    Oral Feeding
    • May be used for total or supplemental nutrition.
    • May be fed at room temperature or chilled.

    Tube Feeding
    • Follow physician's instructions.
    • Adjust flow rate and volume according to patient's condition and tolerance.
    • Gravity feed at room temperature with a 10 Fr or larger tube; use a pump set with smaller tubes.
    • Additional fluid requirements should be met by giving water between or after feedings, or when flushing the tube.
    • Avoid contamination during preparation and use.


  • 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.
