Thanks for your query.

Diabetes Type 2 is a condition marked by high levels of sugar(glucose) in the blood. Since the body cannot prepare good amount of insulin , the glucose fails to enter the cells and hence remains at high levels in blood .

People with diabetes are generally advised to consume drinks which contain only low levels of sugars.Since LUCOZADE is a concentrated source of carbohydrate, it is not suitable for everyday consumption in people with diabetes.

However, LUCOZADE can be used by people with diabetes for emergency correction when they reach a stage called hypoglycemia ,where the blood sugars fall drastically and cause symptoms like sweating , palpitations , tremors ,etc.

Hence I suggest you not to consume this drink every day.
