I was wondering if anyone here has heard of Extend Bars.They supposedly help control blood sugar for up to 9 hours,control hungar,avoid blood sugar highs and lows and supposedly you can count on energy that lasts.They have 2g net carbs.I have used them a couple of times and so far have had good results.According to the package,the bars help to avoid low blood sugar,even overnight so I tried one and it seemed to help me sleep a bit better.
Other claims say the bar reduces blood sugar swings and sustains energy during exercise and revery.
BUT! The box does state that ExtendBar "is NOT a treatment for low blood sugar episodes once they occur".I showed them to my diabetes educator and she said they were a good idea for a snack but to also have something else with them like yogurt.You can buy them online @www.ExtendBar.com or call 1-800-887-3929.I have also found them at Walgreens but they only come 4 bars to a box and online you can get 15 to a box and now the company also makes and sells a product called Extend Crisps,though I haven't had a chance to try those yet.
Has anyone else heard of and or tried this product and if so,how about telling us of your experiences with it,whether good or bad.
