Diabetes is group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood glucose concentrations either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. Diabetes is on the rise, yet most cases are preventable with healthy lifestyle changes. Some can even be reversed. Managing diabetes requires a multidisciplinary approach, and nutrition acts as a significant facet to help reduce the global burden of the diabetes epidemic.
Nutrition is a critical part of diabetes care. Balancing the right amount of carbohydrates, fat, protein along with fibre, vitamins and minerals helps in maintaining adequate glycemic control.
CritriCare brings to you – Supplement D, a calorie dense formula with a unique slow release carbohydrate system for enhanced glycemic control. Supplement D helps in improving insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. Fortified with a blend of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and soluble fibers, it promotes good digestive health.
