Today, more than 415 million people are living with diabetes globally and this number is expected to grow to half a billion by 2040, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the US Department of Health & Human Services.
Diabetes is a complex disease, and its management requires awareness. Keeping blood sugar levels (BSLs) within the recommended range can be challenging. However, making some changes to one’s daily lifestyle habits and treatment plan can help address the problem.
MediKane, an Australian food-as-medicine company, states that its portfolio of plant-based natural food products is designed for several global chronic health conditions, including diabetes. The company, guided by its proven leadership team, aims to become a leader in the safe plant-based ‘food-as-medicine’ health space. The company claims its plant-based treatments are backed by scientific and clinical evidence of improving health. The factors driving the company’s market opportunities are lifestyle and chronic diseases, hospital operations, and global consumer interest in non-drug treatments.
Plant-based treatments by MediKane
As per MediKane, its plant-based products are created using natural Australian ingredients with specific benefits to one’s health. They improve gut health by rebalancing the microbiome and replenishing positive gut bacteria. Being food-based, the products of MediKane comply to FSANZ ( Food Standards Australia & New Zealand).They are tested similarly to how a pharmaceutical company develops new drugs, according to the company.
MediKane’s range of products includes NutriKane D, NutriKane R, and SugarKane Fibre. NutriKane is the umbrella brand for the first two products.
- NutriKane D – helps in lowering and controlling BSLs
- NutriKane R – specifically designed to improve regularity

There is no known cure for uncontrolled BSLs. According to doctors and dieticians, diet management and exercise are the most effective ways to manage one’s BSL.
NutriKane D – the flagship product of MediKane – is a ‘broad-spectrum’ prebiotic shown to feed healthy bacteria and reduce the number of unhealthy (proinflammatory) bacteria in the gut.
