You can drink any protein drink for diabetics but you have to know your limits and eat the right carbs.. Its all a learning process and it takes time… we are all in the same boat… so we are here for you

I use Visalus Protein drinks! It is the shake that taste like cake, and it comes in one flavor and there are over 100 recipes that you can use, so that you never get bored. It tastes AMAZING!! It is 12 gms of protein and <1 gram of sugar (uses sucralose) and 7 carbs. Gluten Free, Lactose Free and contains non-GMO soy protein. If you are interested, just msg me and I can tell you where you can get it. It is amazing stuff!! The soy has also been processed to reduce the isoflavones. It is in powder form and you mix it with skim milk, orange juice, water, anything you want. I mixed mine in El Salvador with all the fresh squeezed fruit of the day.

If I remember correctly, the Atkins shakes actually have fewer net carbs than the glucerna. Slim fast (even the 321 low carb) has more. Love the taste of the slim fast shakes, but I get a sugar crash from them.

I have used Atkins, EAS and Slim Fast low carb protein shakes. They have about 15 –20 grams protein and only 2 net carbs. The Atkins and EAS are sold in Walmart. The low carb slim fast is hard to find. I think they all taste good.

Hey Raymon2d. I like Glucernal. When traveling, or out and about all day, I carry it with me. If it is chilled, it is real good, although I have had to drink it when hot or warm. It is good for low sugars, or if you need to eat, and can't right then for some reason. I don't know if you should drink it wih a meal, kind of like having a burger and shake, but bedtime might be good if have lows at night. It is literally packed with nutrition. For ex.: 7 grams fat, 400 mg potassium, 27 carbs (6g sugar), 10g protein, etc. Next shopping trip, read the label. You will be surprised. It is in the pharmacy section. Good luck. Liquorish
