What Are Some Protein Shakes for Diabetics?

Examples of protein shakes for diabetics include Glucerna SR, Homemade Vanilla and Boost Glucose Control, according to Everyday Health. The suggested serving size for both of these shakes is 8 ounces.

Glucerna SR is free of gluten and a good option for those who are lactose intolerant. There are four flavor options, as of 2015: rich chocolate, homemade vanilla, butter pecan and creamy strawberry. The carbohydrate content makes a serving of this shake equal to a small meal or a moderate snack, reports Everyday Health.

The Boost Glucose Control shakes are specifically for people with Type 2 diabetes. This shake is a meal replacement and is also gluten- and lactose-free, according to Everyday Health.
