Glucose Supplements and Nutritional Drinks

Managing your diabetes means managing your blood sugar level (also known as your blood glucose level, as glucose is a kind of sugar). It's extremely important to keep track of your blood sugar level to avoid conditions like hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). If you want to manage your blood sugar level, you can carry some glucose supplements and nutritional drinks with you. They can help you maintain a healthy blood sugar level whether you're heading to work, exercising or just lounging at home. At Walmart.com, you'll find an assortment of tasty and effective nutritionals to help keep your diabetes under control.

What can cause my blood glucose level to change?

Food, stress, exercise, medications and other factors can all cause changes in your blood glucose level. Hypoglycemia occurs when your blood glucose level is very low and can cause an irregular heart rhythm, fatigue, anxiety, sweating and other symptoms.

Diabetic supplements like glucose tablets provide a dose of sugar to get your blood glucose level back to where it needs to be, and they typically provide around 4 grams of fast-acting carbs to work quickly. Exercise can cause significant changes in blood sugar levels, so it can be helpful to carry glucose tablets with you if you have an active lifestyle.

Nutritional shakes are more like meals in a bottle, as they typically include an assortment of vitamins and minerals and they manage blood sugar as well as hunger. Nutritional drinks often include dietary fiber to aid the digestive process and many popular formulations are lactose- and gluten-free for people with food allergies.
