great source of nourishment
Glucerna Shakes are great source of good nourishment for vitamins needed in your body system. it makes you stronger and you don't have to be a diabetic to drink these shakes. i like them because they have all the vitamins you need and are low in sugar and have a great taste.
It was presented in lieu of meals in the hospital so I bought some (Walmart - free home delivery) when home. Delicious (Vanilla is my favorite) and keeps me stronger than just picking or not eating. I recommend for anyone not eating right, eating incorrectly or sporadically, or just for a daily supplement.
I am a type2 diabetic and recently had to go on insulin I was told about different shakes for meal replacement I tried a few then I bought Glucerna strawberry shake taste is deliscious I feel full I highly recommend it
I love ❤️ it!!
I am gestational diabetic and my dietician recommended I drink one of these for breakfast or snack and well, I got the chocolate flavor and I love it!! I drink one every morning for breakfast and I have been doing great
Hard to Open
I'VE purchased these as a great meal replacement or in place of a snack. Would love calorie ct to be 160 not 180.U NEED NEW EZ RIP PULL CAP. Very Difficult plastic w Arithritis!!
Great breakfast option for Gestational Diabetes!
I was diagnosed with GD early in pregnancy and was struggling to find a quick and easy alternate to my work day go - a bowl of cereal. This is a life saver! Helps prevent an early morning spike, I blend with ice and some peanut butter and I'm good to go. I do have to agree that the flavor is very earthy due to all the vitamins/minerals but the extra peanut butter hides that well.
Lower Blood Sugar
It helps to lower my blood sugar but it has a chalky taste. The cost is also high.
Liked the Equate brand better
8 oz bottle difficult to open
I am an old lady with weak hands. The 8 oz. bottle is extremely difficult for me to open. I may need to switch to a different brand even though the hospital recommended it and I love the taste.
Blood Sugar Spike Because of Included Maltodextrin
Mysterious blood sugar spike after drinking these, finally traced it to maltodextrin after eliminating all other ingredients. Please reformulate without maltodextrin.
my morning start-up
my wife asked me to try this and i loved it. now i drink a chocolate shake every morning. it is a tasty and healthy drink, so i am thankful to her for asking me to try it
I brought these shakes for my Dad. He is a Diabetic who also had a brain tumor which causes trigeminal nerve pain. When this flares up he can't eat anything. He can drink these shakes, loves the taste. Such a blessing not to see my Dad starve and enjoy something. Thank you Glycerna!
gift for a friend
This is the vanilla version I also bought to give variety to meal supplement just as good as the chocolate version. If you know someone with diabetes or have diabetes it is a good product. Wal-Mart have good pricing and shipping right to your door good value good deal thanks Wal-Mart
It tastes amazing, but it does leave my blood sugar levels a little high after I drink it ( I test 2 hours after ) . I prefer the hunger smart shakes , but my bulk store doesn't carry them .
After I became diabetic I tried the Butter Pecan Glucerna and loved it. My husband who is not diabetic lived it as well.
We appreciate that we can order this product on line and receive such prompt shipment to our home. It is what is keeping my 93 year old mother alive. Thank you, Walmart.
Helps rebuild strength
I buy this for my dad who recently haf surgery. He drinks one a day and it helps rebuild his strength from surgery. Also doesn't make his blood sugars high either. I recommend it.
I would say try it if you are diabetic. It might work well for you. I was very disappointed! Personally, I like the Ensure better and am going back to it. It's also less expensive! Glucerna didn't seem to have any better effect on my blood sugars, it upset my stomach (need to eat something first), didn't taste as good as Ensure, and it did not give me energy like Ensure does. There also seemed to be a slight aftertaste. I tried vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and butter pecan flavors. The strawberry and butter pecan tasted good (without the aftertaste). Just so you know, Ensure has more calories (250 vs 200) and a lot more carbs (40g vs 26g).
Found my new fav!!!
I've been buying the chocolate shakes for three years now and I always buy that flavor. But one day, the store was out of chocolate so I thought I'd try the butter pecan flavor and OMG! So good....especially if you drink them cold. I don't have time in the morning before work to make myself breakfast and so I drink one every morning. I can drink them on my way to work too. It keeps me filled until lunch. Can't wait to try it blended with ice.
TO HIGH IN CARBS
I TAKE ALOT OF INSULIN AND USE TO LOVE GLUCERNA BUT TOO HIGH IN CARBS MAKES MY SUGAR GO UP
