Meal replacements for Diabetics

  • Recent research by Diabetes UK has supported the use of meal replacement shakes and total dietary replacement, in the prevention and remission of type 2 diabetes.

  • Driven by obesity, genetics and other lifestyle factors, research shows that the substantial weight loss resulting from a total dietary replacement can lead to significant fat reduction, particularly around organs (visceral fat). This leads to improved function of the liver and pancreas, which in turn leads to better blood sugar regulation and may even lead to prevention or remission of type 2 diabetes
