Q
Can a diabetic use bioplus?

I'm a type 2 diabetic, relatively new, diagnosed in May 2019 and my average HbA1c is about 6.4. I use Metformin as well Astorvastatin. I just came across the bioplus sachets in the store and i just want to know whether I can use them on the off chance that I feel a bit lathargic at work?
