Q. My father is a 45 years old diabetic. Is it advisable for him to have energy drinks like Horlicks Lite, which is sugar free and calorie free?

A.  GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSKCH) has launched Horlicks Lite, specially formulated, keeping in mind the dietary needs of health conscious adults and diabetics. Horlicks Lite is a nutritional drink that contains zero added sugar, has zero cholesterol, is high on fibre and low on fat. It has 26 vital nutrients and essential antioxidants and comes in two flavours - regular, malt and coffee. This nourishing health beverage has been clinically tested and found to be suitable for people with diabetes, helping them manage their daily diet requirements. It is a low calorie health drink and not completely devoid of calories, though it is sugar free. This product has been endorsed and certified by Diabetes India, which is the largest body of practicing diabetologists, physicians, medical specialists and researchers interested in the research of diabetes. However, I would suggest you discuss this with your physician as well.
