Gluco Smooth

Gluco Smooth™ is a Food for Special Medical Purpose pre-meal drink that has proven medical benefits for people with type 2 diabetes. It is comprised of food products that work to help people with type 2 diabetes manage their condition by reducing blood sugar increases after a meal.

What Gluco Smooth™ is used for

Gluco Smooth™ is a pre-meal drink that is used to assist in the management of type 2 diabetes. Taken 0-30 minutes before a high carbohydrate meal, it significantly reduces the blood glucose spike that meal causes. In the long term, this helps reduce the blood sugar readings (HbA1c).

Gluco Smooth™ is to be used as part of an overall management plan for people with pre-diabetes, early type 2 diabetes or those people with reasonably well controlled type 2 diabetes.

Gluco Smooth™ is not recommended:

  • For people with allergies to milk products or soy products.
  • For people with high measures of blood glucose, or highly fluctuating measures of blood glucose.
  • For people prescribed insulin by their doctor (without their direct advice).
  • As a sole source of nutrition, or as a regular meal replacement product.

How long to take it

Gluco Smooth™ is designed to be used as part of the routine management of type 2 diabetes. Studies show that in long term use the product is both safe and effective.

If you take too much (overdose)

The dosage recommendation is a single sachet consumed as a pre-meal drink before meals. As a food product, there is no potential for overdose – however the high levels of soluble fibre may lead to diarrhea if consumed in large amounts.

Taking other medicines

Tell your health care professional if you are taking any other medicines, including any that you buy without a prescription from a pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop. This will help them decide if using Gluco Smooth™ is appropriate for you.

Gluco Smooth™ has been shown to be effective when used in conjunction with medicines designed to treat type 2 diabetes. As a food product, there is little chance of interaction. However, it is important to take oral medicines 15 minutes before the pre-meal drink so the absorption of the drug is not changed.

Storage

  • Keep Gluco Smooth™ below 30°C. Individual sachets should only be opened directly before use as part of preparing the pre-meal drink. Do not use if sachet is torn or damaged.
  • Take note of the ‘best before’ date on the box or the sachet before consuming.

  • Whey protein (and other dairy proteins)
