Glucerna® 1.0 Cal - Vanilla

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 hyperglycemia 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.
