Diabetes or diabetes mellitus is a diverse disease with several types that differ in the way they originated, but they are all associated with the occurrence of higher blood glucose levels than is standard. Type 1 is caused by a lack of insulin (a hormone in the pancreas that gets sugar from the blood to tissue). The only possible treatment is insulin. Type 2 is caused by reduced tissue sensitivity to insulin, mostly due to an increased amount of fat in the body. Treatment consists of reducing body fat, increased exercise and medication. Type 2 diabetics usually have the problem of obesity, in contrast with type 1 diabetics (most often childhood). Diabetic diets are based on regulated carbohydrates including optimal distribution of them throughout the day. Nutritional problems are mostly regarding a lack of protein in food and an increased amount of carbohydrates and fats.

In the words of a nutritional specialist:

Nutrition has its place with this disease, too, and as has been mentioned already, the right diet plays a key role in offsetting diabetes well. So if a diabetic becomes ill and needs nutritional support, we can use sip feeding that has been specially modified for diabetics, such as nutrego DIA. The key components that have been adjusted here are: a reduced amount of carbohydrates (diabetics must count them) + a reduced amount of energy (the majority of diabetics are obese) + soluble fibre (helps to improve the glycaemic index) and a sufficient amount of protein (diabetics generally have more fat than protein in their food).


Nutritionally complete isocaloric nutrition with a low glycaemic index and soluble fibre intended for malnutrition or the risk of it in patients with diabetes mellitus or hyperglycaemia. Soluble fibre supports proper bowel function. Nutrego DIA can also be used in overweight or obese patients to compensate for nutritional deficiencies. It does not contain gluten or lactose, so it is suitable for lactose intolerance and coeliac disease.
