Diabetes

During illness the body’s need for protein, energy, vitamins and minerals may go up because of the effect of the illness itself, or because the body can’t use the nutrients it gets from food properly. Swallowing problems, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea may make eating and drinking difficult and so it is hard to get enough nourishment. People with diabetes, like other people, may need help to meet their nutritional needs when this happens.

High energy drinks, or a liquid feed given through a tube into the stomach can be used to give extra nutrients. People with diabetes must take care to ensure that their blood sugar levels remain normal when unwell. To help achieve this special high energy drinks and liquid tube feeds are made for people with diabetes. They contain different types of fat, carbohydrate and fibre from standard feeds. The nutrients in the feeds are chosen specially to meet the specific needs of people with diabetes, with the aim of helping them to keep their diabetes under control.
