End of Glucerna

While driving back to Fremont this evening, I stopped at a couple of stores that have carried Glucerna cereal in the past, but couldn't find it on the shelves. During my trips back and forth to Oregon, I'd been buying it from Fred Meyer stores, where I kept getting discount coupons, but this past week I started on the last box in my supply, and of course I'm not going to be driving to Oregon very often now. When I got back to the apartment, I checked online, and while I couldn't find any explicit statement on the web site, it appears that Abbot Laboratories has discontinued the cereal. That's too bad. Glucerna was a little pricey, but I found that it really did have a good effect on my morning blood sugar levels. Now I'm going to have to start experimenting again to find something I can eat for breakfast that won't send my blood sugar (which is generally above normal in the morning anyway) skyrocketing.
