this is medically wrong!! it will cause more harm and aggravate water loss dehydration by forming more urine!!

Sir
Regards
I am a doctor and find that the advt appearing on TV sony max during cricket matches and other channels on a Glucon D Heines foods is totally wrong.It claims that children who feel tired after play in the sun loose glucose which needs to be refurbished!! They show child taking lots of ''glucose'' GLUCON D ( WITH ELECTROLYTES?? ARE THEY ENOUGH?) in heaps in a glass 200 ml water and start playing again ..this is not true to science of fluid balance of our body.
This is against our national dehydration ORS liquid program!


PLEASE JUST TAKE NOTE OF THE SENTIMENT
All of us know that
Glucose is high osmolarity drink which if taken in heaps in water can cuase more osmotic diuresis more URINE formation and MORE WATER AND ELECTROLYTES loss WORSENING THE ALREADY DEHYDRATED CHILD OR AN ATHLETE!!

WE HAVE TO TAKE FLUIDS EQUAL TO OUR SWEAT COMPOSITION...ATLEAST ORAL REHYDRATION SOLUTION ors SATCHETS MAKES A FLUID ==WITH 5 GMS SALT AND 25 GMS SUGAR IN A LITRE OF WATER !! WITH TOMATOES OR BANANAS FOR POTASSIUM AND OTHER CALORIE LOSSES FOR A TENNIS CRICKET PLAYER!!
KINDLY DO THE NEEDFUL IF YOU ALL CARE FOR DEHYDRATING CHILDREN OF OUR COUNTRY AND ALL THE ATHLETES ESP in summer season with so much of heat all over .
pLEASE SEE THE AD, ASK EXPERTS IMMEDIATELY AND TEST THE PRODUCT AND TAKE urgent action.
regards and thanks

TO WHOMSOEVER IT MAY CONCERN



THE AUDIO-VISUAL ADVERTISEMENT OF GLUCON –D IS EXTREMELY DISTURBING. IT SHOWS THAT SUN IS EXTRACTING ENTIRE BODY WATER OF THE CHILD BY SUCKING IT LIKE A FRUITEE FROM THE TOP AND THE BEING SUCKED UP! FOR 2 SECONDS WHEN THIS VISUAL PASSES THROUGH THE SCREEN, A MAN GETS DISTURBED EVEN IF HE IS NOT ATTENTIVE TO THE SCREE.

IT IS HOPED THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY NEED FOR BEING INFORMED TO ANY HUMAN BEING ABOUT HOW OUR LIFE SINCE BIRTH IS DEPENDENT 100 % FOR IT’S SURVIVAL. ONE SENTENCE IS ENOUGH FOR ONE TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF THE SUN DOES NOT RISE FOR 20 DAYS, NO LIFE ON EARTH WILL EXIST AT ALL. THERE COULD BE 1000s OF SENTENCES WHICH CAN BE WRITTEN ABOUT SUN’S BENEVOLENCE AND KINDNESS TO ALL LIFEFORMS.

IT IS URGED TO KINDLY UNDERSTAND FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL VIEWERS AND REMOVE / WITHDRAW / CHANGE THE REFERRED DISTURBING AUDIO-VISUAL ADVERTISEMENT. A LINE OF ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND CONFIRMATION OF ACTION WILL BE DESIRABLE. THERE ARE OTHERS AS WELL WHO HAVE FELT THE SAME INCONVENIENCE. TO PROMOTE SALES, ANY KIND OF APPROACH CAN NOT BE ALLOWED BY EDUCATED CIVILISED SENSITIVE COMMUNITY.

THANKING IN ANTICIPATION.

I have a question... Absorption of GLUCOSE from the intestine is dependent on SODIUM. They both are carried together by a carrier protein. This is why one is necessary for the absorption of the other. ORS always has glucose in it for this reason. GLUCON D has no sodium. SO how it is possible for the glucose to get absorbed??

What is the source of the glucose? I think Glucon D was some other company before Heinz bought it. Well since it's a Heinz product, I bet the Glucose is derived from Corn to which many people are sensitive if not allergic. It's mind boggling, the number of products that have corn in them - not a good thing... the ingredients of all those products in india we have used for years, could have been modified these days with corn derivatives.. eg., Highfructose corn syrup for sugar, corn solids for cocoa fat..These cause all kinds of digestive issues and more.
