The term prediabetes is used for individuals whose glucose or glycated hemoglobin levels do not meet the criteria for a diagnosis of diabetes but who have abnormal carbohydrate metabolism, a condition that results in elevated glucose levels (dysglycemia). Because prediabetes is an intermediate state between normoglycemia and diabetes, it is a significant risk factor for progression to diabetes as well as cardiovascular disease and several other cardiometabolic conditions.

In the metabolic area, Euglycem is a dietary supplement containing Chromium picolinate and plant extract of Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa). The presence of Chromium helps maintaining normal blood glucose levels and promotes normal macronutrient metabolism.


Osteoporosis is a disease that affects over 4.5 million Italians, with particular involvement of the elderly and female population. It is a silent and not very symptomatic disease that can quickly lead to serious and disabling consequences. All patients require calcium and Vitamin D treatment before starting anti-cancer therapy: very often the recommended levels cannot be reached by diet and sun exposure alone. Italfarmaco, thanks to its own research and development activities, has over the years made available a complete range of medicinal specialities with formulations and dosages required in personalised and optimised therapies in terms of efficacy, adherence to therapy and safety.


Sarcopenia can be defined as a geriatric syndrome characterized initially by loss of muscle mass that is destined to progress, leading to a deterioration in strength and physical performance. Age-related sarcopenia has features superimposed on the frailty condition of the elderly.

Several factors contribute to the condition of sarcopenia, including:

  • diet;
  • malnutrition and chronic diseases;
  • physical inactivity;
  • the aging process.

In light of the pathophysiological picture of sarcopenia, it is not difficult to identify the nutritional approach to support patients who have it, or who are in situations that expose them to this condition.

Adequate protein intake to contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

The dietary supplements, PROther® F.C. and PROther® SOD, made from whey protein isolate, are useful in providing additional protein to the diet. Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

PROther® and PROther® 5 are hyperproteic special medical purpose foods consisting of whey protein for the dietary management of sarcopenia.
