    Pros: Specialized nutrition for diabetics; available in three creamy flavors.
    Cons: More expensive in price than regular supplements; higher in fat.

    Summary: On the Medical Surgical floor where I’ve worked at as an RN for over 4 years now, we frequently serve nutritional supplements to many of our patients who have poor appetites or have specialized dietary needs. We often use Ensure or ... read more

  • Too junky to really help

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Glucerna at least has some vitamins and minerals in it.
    Cons: Too low in protein, too high in carbs & salt. Artificial sweeteners help no one.

    Summary: Glucerna's second ingredient is maltodetrin (after one does a thorough search to find the ingredients, Abott the manufacture and also of pharmaceuticals likes to hide these things), maltodextrin is an additive and has no real nutritinonal value. Then ... read more

    Pros: Helps diabetics and others that can't eat like they should.
    Cons: Price. Very costly.

    Summary: I am like most everyone lately, I just don’t seem to have to time to sit down and have healthy meals when I should. In the mornings I am rushed to get to work so I grab a cup of coffee and out the door I go and at lunch I am lucky if I get the chance to ... read more

    Pros: Tastes nothing like its name and those wonders for your body.
    Cons: nothing as all.

    Summary: We have never had problems with gaining fat to our body in my family. For some reason i was different, i guess it was in my ancestors. I began feeling uncomfortable with the way i looked so i was trying new things. I was using Slim Fast bars, and i heard ... read more

  • EUREKA! A LOW SUGAR SHAKE THAT DOES NOT TASTE LIKE MEDICINE

    Apr 25, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A great tasting shake with very little sugar and 24 vitamins
    Cons: Slight aftertaste after first sip only

    Summary: At last! As a diabetic, I've been searching for a diet drink or bar that was low in sugar and tasted better than castor oil. I've tried several (two of which I wrote Epinions about) and have been sorely disappointed each time. Many of the ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Stabalizes Blood Sugar, Lactose Free, Easy Grab-n-Go, Wonderful Taste!
    Cons: price, but I have found a 6 pack of 8oz's for under $8 at Wal-mart

    Summary: Glucerna Shakes are great on so many levels. They are wonderful for diabetics and (like me) hypoglycemic (even reactives) by having rounded, wholesome nutrition, and helping stabalize blood sugar. But the big kicker is that they are LACTOSE FREE, which ... read more
