My father has diabetes. He’s had it for a few years now and unfortunately, suffers from complications from it frequently. Here are some statistics about diabetes in the Hispanic population.
- 6MM (23%) Hispanics in the United States have diabetes compared to 20MM of non-Hispanic whites.
- An estimated that 57 million people have pre-diabetes in the US, and 35% are estimated to be Hispanic.
Diabetes has affected our family greatly. I’m not sure if our culture really knows just how prevalent diabetes is in the Hispanic population.
Glucerna, helps diabetic sufferers satisfy hunger without spiking the glucose levels. It can be used as a meal replacement plan. In addition to shakes, they also make bars, all low in calories and sugar. Its slow-digesting carbohydrate formula may help some diabetics with weight loss and monitoring blood sugar levels.
Whether you’re trying to manage your blood sugar or even just watching your weight, making Glucerna products part of your meal plan is a smart way to help get the right kinds of carbs every day. Each delicious variety has Carbsteady®, or Carbsteady®Ultra which includes slowly digestible carbohydrates designed to help minimize blood sugar spikes. And with diabetics, this is the most important thing you can do for your health.
Glucerna is available in the Diabetic Supplies aisle at Walmart’s nationwide and is available without a doctor’s prescription.
We tried Glucerna in a smoothie today. It was delicious! Here is the Vanilla Mango-Pineapple Smoothie Recipe we made today.
Vanilla Mango Pineapple Smoothie Recipe
1/2 Cup Glucerna Shake (Homemade Vanilla Flavor)
1 cup chopped Pineapple
1 Mango peeled and chopped
1 cup ice
Just blend all together in a blender and serve! Since Glucerna is sweet in flavor you don’t need any additional sweeteners. It came out delicious.
