Hi My son 49 years old has prog/MS and in bed on a P.E.G at home with FULL time Care the last 10 years, recently due to wound his Diabetic condition has worsened and now needs injections rather than pills, Of course his sugar levels have risen shapely and his local NHS dietician says she cannot supply (diabetes-specific formulas) through the NHS, so please can you direct me to where I can purchase such Formulas High in M.U.F.A s - Fructose - Fiber Regards Brenda UK
The only part I can help with is that fructose is a sugar and will raise his BG (blood sugars) even more. Your body converts ALL carbohydrates to BG. So potato, rice, pasta, banana... will raise his BG. Insulin lowers BG so the two have to match.
