Glucerna 1.2 Cal

The Glucerna 1.2 Cal is a specialized calorically-dense formula with a unique carbohydrate blend for enhanced glycemic control, and fish oil. Glucerna 1.2 Cal is clinically shown to blunt postprandial glycemic response, and thus help improve blood glucose control. For patients with hyperglycemia/abnormal glucose tolerance resulting from metabolic stress, such as illness, trauma or infection.

Glucerna 1.2 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
  • Caloric distribution - protein, 20%; fat, 45%; carbohydrate, 35%
  • 20% of calories from protein to promote anabolism and support wound healing
  • At 1.2 Cal/mL, patient needs can be met with less volume
  • Meets or exceeds 100% of the RDIs for 24 key vitamins and minerals in 1500 Cal (1250 mL)
  • 4% of total calories from saturated fatty acids and rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (28% of total calories), meeting American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association guidelines
  • 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, which meets American Heart Association recommendations to support circulatory and heart health
  • Slowly digested carbohydrate sources for enhanced glycemic control
  • Chromium, from chromium picolinate, a highly bioavailable form of chromium, which has been shown in some studies to lower fasting and postprandial glucose levels and A1C in people with diabetes. Chromium picolinate supports glucose tolerance by helping the body's own insulin work better
  • Kosher
  • Halal
  • Gluten-free; suitable for lactose intolerance
