Extend Nutrition snacks help prevent dangerous blood sugar lows. Can you predict the next time your blood sugar will swing out of control? Of course not.
By replacing less healthy snacks with Extend Nutrition, you can help prevent unpredictable blood sugar lows for up to 9 hours at a time.
It is important to prevent low blood sugar, because when blood sugar falls too low brain function can be temporarily impaired. Low blood sugar can lead to confusion, irritability, shakiness, anxiety, moodiness or other uncharacteristic behaviors.
Substantiated, clinically-proven benefits.
In clinical studies, we have tested the patented Extend Nutrition formula head-to-head against traditional carbohydrate snacks - the results were astounding.
Participants who ate an Extend Nutrition snack had significantly fewer episodes of low blood sugar (75% less) than those who ate a typical snack.
Extend Nutrition helps prevent low blood sugar because the unique formula converts to blood sugar very gradually, for up to 9 hours.
Each individual serving is packed with protein and fiber, plus contains 5g of uncooked cornstarch.
Uncooked cornstarch digests very slowly - it doesn’t completely digest in the stomach, and continues to slowly convert to glucose as it passes through the intestinal tract.
This unique combination of ingredients is the power, and the safety, of Extend Nutrition.
Why not just carry glucose tabs for low blood sugar?
Preventing a blood sugar low with Extend Nutrition is healthier than allowing a low to occur and then treating it with glucose tabs.
Each time your body suffers a low blood sugar episode, the nervous system becomes less sensitive to the crucial warning signs of falling blood sugar. Over time, frequent blood sugar lows can cause harmful damage to the body including seizure or diabetic coma.
(Extend Nutrition snacks are NOT a treatment for low blood sugar once it occurs, because they are made with slowly converting carbohydrate – they do not raise blood sugar quickly.)
Treating low blood sugar episodes is critical if they occur; but eating Extend Nutrition daily can actually help prevent the low blood sugar causes.
What’s all this talk about low blood sugar? My problem is high blood sugar!
The onset of diabetes occurs because the insulin producing mechanism in the pancreas is not functioning properly, this causes chronically high blood sugar levels.
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, and have begun to manage blood sugar with insulin, diet, and lifestyle there is a new challenge: to keep blood sugar within the optimal healthy range (80-120mg/dl).
Hypoglycemia is a complication from the treatment of Type 1 Diabetes with insulin, not from diabetes itself.
The single most common side effect of diabetes prescription medications is dangerous blood sugar lows.
A key part of living healthy with Type 1 diabetes is to keep blood sugar levels within healthy ranges - not too high, but not too low either.
People with diabetes need a plan to balance physical activity with food intake, insulin and other medications.
Eat Extend Nutrition as a convenient & healthy snack anytime.
Eating healthy nutritious foods helps to prevent unexpected episodes of hypoglycemia - a side effect of diabetes management. Frequent low blood sugar can lead to a condition called “hypoglycemia unawareness”.
Low blood sugar causes can vary between any of the following: taking too much insulin, vigorously exercising, missing a scheduled meal, or going prolonged periods without food.
Extend Snacks help prevent swings in blood sugar levels, including low blood sugar episodes.
This gives you the power to safely and naturally reduce your average blood sugar levels over time, keeping it within healthy ranges.
