I have type 1 diabetes, can I use Purition?
Yes! There is no reason why you can't use and enjoy Purition if you have type 1 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes must be managed by taking insulin for life to control blood sugar levels. Type 1 diabetics also need to test their blood glucose levels regularly and to ‘carb count’ – closely monitor how many grams of carbohydrates they eat and drink.
This is where Purition can be a true ally. All nutrition facts, including macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein and fats) are provided per serving and per 100g here, so Purition can make carb counting much easier.
Type 1 diabetics are not advised to follow any ‘special diet’, instead they are urged to eat a healthy, balanced diet and just enjoy life as anyone else. Purition is real food, made only with whole food ingredients such as nuts and seeds and can be a healthy addition to anyone’s diet, including type 1 (and type 2) diabetics.

When taking any prescribed medication (such as insulin), please make sure to consult your health professional before making any changes to your diet.
