Talk with your health care provider about a diabetes management plan that’s right for you. #GlucernaHungerSmart #CollectiveBias
Though I myself may not have diabetes, some of my loved ones do. It is important to raise awareness on diabetes. Equally important is being able to manage it. One of mother’s favorites to manage her diabetes was Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes. Please use under medical supervision. Today I wanted to share with you all a tip that came in handy with my mom- a Diabetic On the Go Kit, which *spoiler alert* includes the Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes.
Why create a Diabetic On the Go Kit? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone out with my mom, or other loved ones and their blood sugar spiked. What a nerve wracking experience! Being prepared is key. The Diabetic On the Go Kit will make life easier!
Diabetic On the Go Kit
I used a medium sized makeup bag to store all my supplies in. It doesn’t have to be a makeup bag, any bag with a secure closing will do! I picked a bag that was not too big, not too small. You’re going to be carrying this with you every time you go out after all!
Using a Glucose reader can help you better manager your diabetes by tracking any fluctuations in your blood glucose level. I definitely recommend investing in a spare to take on the go!
Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes
Managing blood sugar can be a challenge! Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ shakes are specially designed for people with diabetes. They have 50% more protein than the leading weight loss shakes, but they also have 66% less sugars, making them a smart choice to help manage hunger! Glucerna® also contains CarbSteady, which allows carbs to be released slowly over time and prevents blood sugar spikes.
Steady is exciting when living with diabetes! That’s why I highly recommend Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ shakes to help manage your diabetes! The shakes can be purchased at Walmart. They are very easy to find in the Diabetic Supplies section at the store. Reminder to use under medical supervision.

Lip Balm, Lotion, Water, Notebook, Emergency Info
Lip Balm & Lotion
Did you know that dry skin is a complication amongst diabetics?! Dry skin can occur as a result of high blood glucose. Make sure to have lip balm and lotion handy to keep your lips and skin moisturized.
Keeping a notebook/journal and jotting down what you eat is a great idea! That way you can keep track of what you eat and notice if any foods cause you to react in different ways!
In case of an emergency, having your emergency info at hand is a great idea! This way people are able to get in touch with your emergency contact and doctor if need be! Better to be safe, than sorry!
I hope these tips come in handy. Do you have an on the go kit?
