PostSubject: Hypoglycemic/Diabetes GF products   Fri Feb 22, 2008 6:00 pm

Many Celiacs have a form of diabetes or Hypoglycemia ( low blood sugar), which is only exerbated by our small choices of food available, especially when out and away from home. I carry some fruit and nut bars and pretzels with me but sometimes it sneaks up on me real quick and a faster acting product is needed. So I carry a little tube of these glucose tablets.

First I'd like to report on Reli-On Glucose tablets

Comes in a variety of flavors too!

Glucose Tablets
Raise Blood Sugar FAST & Boost ENERGY
To raise blood sugar quickly, ReliOn® Glucose Tablets
deliver fast-acting carbohydrates to relieve hypoglycemic episodes.
What's more, they contain no fat, caffeine or sodium and are naturally
cholesterol free.

Many people with diabetes are not sure how to
effectively avoid and/or manage hypoglycemia. The foods most commonly
used to treat this condition (candy, cola and juice) contain sucrose or
fructose which requires time to break down into glucose, delaying
relief of hypoglycemic events. Because it is difficult for patients to
be sure how much glucose they are metabolizing with these foods, they
tend to over-treat, turning hypoglycemia into hyperglycemia.

Packaged
in convenient "on-the-go" tubes of 10 four gram tablets or economy size
bottles of 50, they’re available in four great tasting flavors: orange, sour apple, grape, fruit punch and watermelon.


Are the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets Gluten-free?

Quote :
Yes. We have tested our tablets and they are gluten-free. (We do not make this claim on the label).

Are the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets kosher?
Quote :

No, they are not kosher, however, they do not contain any animal products.

Another source for Glucose tablets is Walgreens brand

Union; look for the circle U logo.

It seems the tablets aren't, at least they didn't have that info at their site.

The only Kosher glucose product I've been able to find is the Gluco Burst Drink. It is certified by the OU.

While proper blood glucose maintenance is an important part of a diabetic health
regimen, proper nutrition is also essential.

Maintaining Blood Glucose Levels
GlucoBurst Diabetic Drink helps maintain blood glucose levels and provides nutrients
that may be beneficial for visual and circulatory health.


GlucoBurst Diabetic Drink does not
contain fructose, which reflects a recent recommendation of the American Diabetes
Association (ADA). This diabetic beverage is also high in fiber, which has been
shown in recent studies to improve cholesterol levels and diabetic reactions to
other carbohydrates.


Provides at least 25% of the Recommended Intake for 24 Vitamins and Minerals

Each can of GlucoBurst Diabetic Drink provides at least 25% of the RDIs for 24 key
nutrients.


  • Balanced nutrition; lactose-free* and gluten-free
  • With 660 IU Beta-Carotene to help support eye health
  • With 50 mg DHA, 1 g L-Arginine, and 400 mcg folic acid to help support circulatory
    health
  • FOS (dietary fiber) fortified
  • 0 g of trans fat; no added sugar**

A Focus to Cure Diabetes

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of GlucoBurst diabetic products will be
donated for diabetes research. To date,
PBM Products has donated several million dollars to help find a cure for diabetes.
