The energy distribution is designed according to the United States Dietary Reference Intake (US DRI) for the elderly, and the formulation complies with the guidelines from American Diabetes Association, Diabetes UK, American Heart Association and American Association of Kidney Patients.

Amongst the elderly population, type 2 diabetes is a growing problem, and a larger proportion of newly diagnosed diabetics are older (> 60 years). 1 in 5 elderly suffers from diabetes. Elderly people are often more frail and susceptible to illness. This can mean diabetes-related complications are harder to manage. Furthermore, exercise and adopting a strict diet can be more difficult for the elderly people, and problems can arise in these areas. Common diabetic micro vascular complications include retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy.

A key goal of diabetes management is to prevent complications because, over time, having an uncontrolled blood sugar level can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Healthy eating is essential to prevent long-term complications of diabetes. It is therefore important for the diabetic elderly to practice healthy eating habits in the management of blood sugar level, yet get sufficient amount of nutrients for optimal health.

Complete, Balanced Nutritional Food for Seniors 60+

Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic, which is complete with carbohydrate, proteins and fat, helps to provide sufficient amount of energy and prevent malnutrition for the elderly. The Energy Complex in Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic is made up of vitamin B Complex and Chromium. Energy Complexhelps metabolise energy effectively at the cellular level, providing energy and vitality throughout the day. It also helps to maintain normal blood glucose levels.

 
Key Benefits for Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic
 

1. Optimal blood glucose management

 

It is important for diabetic patients to manage their blood glucose levels. Uncontrolled blood glucose can increase the risk of complications especially among the elderly. Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic is specially formulated with CarboplexCarboplex consist of a combination of maltitol and Inuplex, a slow-release carbohydrate which contributes to a low Glycemic Index (GI) formulation. It supplies gradual energy to the body without causing a spike in plasma glucose. Blood sugar spikes are important to control because it is the elevated blood glucose that degrades and damages the body of a diabetic over time, causing all manner of complications ranging from blindness through retinopathy to kidney failure to the possible amputation of the lower legs.

2. Healthy digestive system

 

The elderly have a compromised digestive system. This is in part because of the age-related physiological and biological changes that cause a poorer rate of digestion and absorption.

Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic is specially formulated with InuplexInuplex consist of soluble (inulin) and insoluble fiber (pea fiber) to help maintain a healthy digestive system.

Inulin is a fiber that cannot be digested by the small intestine and reach the colon intact. It then acts as a food to feed the good bacteria in the colon. Inulin helps maintain a healthy digestive system by favouring the growth of beneficial bacteria over (friendly bacteria) that of harmful ones (unfriendly bacteria) in the colon.

3. A kidney-friendly formulation

 

2 in 5 diabetics suffer from diabetic nephropathy. According to a report, the trend for end-stage renal disease related to diabetes mellitus has been increasing since 1980.

Proteplex

Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic is formulated with Proteplex, a specific quantity and quality of protein that meet the needs of an elderly. Protein helps your body maintain and rebuild muscles. Excess protein in the body is filtered by the kidney. If there are high levels of protein to be filtered by the kidney for the long term, this may damage the kidney. Kidney function also deteriorates as a result of aging.

Proteplex is a slow-release protein (casein protein) to supply a gradual amount of protein to the body without burdening the kidney. It will also help maintain the muscle mass and prevent the breakdown of muscles, without causing a protein spike in the elderly. Since kidney function deteriorates as you age, a lower and slower release of protein content in Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic makes it more kidney-friendly for the elderly.

 
 

EPA & DHA

Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic is also formulated with omega 3 (EPA & DHA). EPA and DHA can improve kidney function and may attenuate the age-associated decline in kidney function. It is also an anti-inflammatory agent, which may be beneficial in patients affected by diseases which are characterized by active inflammation, such as diabetic nephropathy.

Low* Sodium

This formulation is also low in sodium. High sodium intake will alter the sodium balance, causing the kidneys to have reduced function and remove less water resulting in higher blood pressure. This puts a strain on the kidney and can lead to kidney disease.

The omega 3 in Appeton Wellness 60+ Diabetic complies with American Heart Association, American Diabetic Association and Canadian Diabetic Association recommendation (2-3 servings of fatty fish intake).
