Diabetes is a serious disease. It is a lifelong chronic condition that affects the body’s ability to use the energy found in food. Diabetics do not produce or do not have enough insulin in the body and therefore cannot adsorb the glucose, which creates a build up in the blood and often leads to more serious problems.
Luckily, I’m not diabetic making me enjoy food and other things better. But for those who have diabetes being cautious on what you eat would be very important. I know a lot of you have been researching and finding some ways, even with diabetes, to make life even better.
Just like what the newest brand ambassador of Diabetamil have experienced. Gary Valenciano was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was just 14 years old, with a blood sugar that reaches 722, he was told by his doctors that he would not live past the age of forty. Now at 51, Gary Valenciano believes that diabetes shouldn’t stop you from enjoying life!
Gary reminisce the moments in his life at the launch held at Victorinos in Quezon City. While telling his story, I realized how disciplined he was in terms of managing diabetes. Having this kind of disease is definitely a lifestyle changer. But as to what Gary says “If the normal people can do and enjoy life, Diabetic people should even do it more. It should never stop them on doing amazing things.”
Diabetamil have been a very important part of his diet ever since he discovered it. A diet that includes DiabetaMil reduced calorie, sugar-free Cereal and Non-Cereal drink contain vitamins, minerals and protein specially formulated for people with diabetes. It is enriched with Chromium Picolinate and Dietary Fiber, is high in Calcium and has a Low Glycemic (GI) Value.
The mineral Chromium Picolinate found in the drink can aid in both glucose and insulin metabolism by breaking down the fats, protein and cholesterol. In addition, this nutritional drink also fulfills the Codex requirement as source of calcium, which can be beneficial in optimizing glucose metabolism.
The high fiber oat content in DiabetaMil Chocolate & Vanilla drinks, help lower bad cholesterol. It also contains a glycemic index (GI) value level of 30.5 which helps reduce overall blood glucose level.
Aside from the multi-flavored nutritional drinks, DiabetaMil also offers low-calorie and sugar-free cookies suitable for diabetics. Snacks have an important role in the daily diet as they help keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible.
DiabetaMil has a delicious lineup of cereal (Vanilla and Chocolate flavors) & non-cereal drinks (Moccachinno flavor) and cookies (Nutty Chocolate and Vanilla Dried Fruit flavors) that allows one a healthy and nutritious meal without sacrificing its taste. Just like Gary, DiabetaMil believes that there are DiabetaMillion ways to enjoy life. So don’t let diabetes stop you from enjoying life!
