Protein for Diabetics

If you’re one of the 21 million Americans who has Type 2 Diabetes, you know that it’s critical for you to manage your blood sugar and insulin levels.

When you don’t manage your blood sugar, it builds up in your blood stream. 
This can lead to complications with:

  • Heart disease (cardiovascular disease),
  • Blindness (retinopathy)
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)
  • Kidney damage (nephropathy)

You need to avoid sugar and eat foods that don’t spike your blood sugar.  The Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how quickly foods spike your blood sugar.  It’s best to stick with foods that are low to moderate GI.

Protein is low GI, and it acts as a control rod for insulin.  Every diabetic should include protein as 25% of their diet.

The problem is that protein is expensive and it takes time to cook.  For those reasons, protein powder is an ideal solution.  But even protein powders are loaded with sugar fillers these days.

If you read labels, you know this is true.  Sugar makes protein powder taste better and it adds bulk at low cost.  But it’s terrible for diabetics.

Enter EnergyFirst ProEnergy Whey Protein Isolate.  It’s pure whey protein isolate, and contains no added sugar.  It won’t spike your blood sugar and it is ideal for controlling insulin levels.

Use ProEnergy:

  • After exercise, particularly resistance workouts
  • As a protein supplement to meals
  • In the mornings when you don’t have time to cook breakfast
  • Any time you need a quick grab-and-go shake for a meal
