Sugar-free Cough Syrup Does Not Raise Blood Sugars


By: dhtest

People with diabetes should know that they have the option of treating their seasonal cold and flu symptoms with a sugar-free cough syrup.

“Most consumers don’t even realize how much sugar is in many cough and cold medicines, not to mention many other unnecessary ingredients,” says Gary M. April, president of Health Care Products, the company that manufactures Diabetic Tussin.

Diabetic Tussin is the first and only cough and cold medicine formulated without sugar, sodium, alcohol, fructose, sorbitol, dyes and decongestants. It contains the active ingredients Guaifensin and Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide to control coughs and relieve chest congestion. A children’s formula and cough drops in cherry and menthol flavors are also available.

Diabetic Tussin comes in liquid and soft gel, and is available at most major supermarkets and wholesalers throughout the country, including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Kroger and Giant Foods.
