The Causes of Diabetes: Remember diabetes results from your body converting excess carbs, sugar and calories into body fat courtesy of the ‘fat storage’ hormone insulin. As you get bigger and bigger, a time will come where your body cannot produce sufficient insulin (insulin resistance) which leads to Type 2 diabetes. On this basis, Purition should be perfect, on the proviso that you are not taking insulin as our recipes are by design very low-carb. If you are taking insulin, it would be advisable to discuss your medication and dosages with your GP, because there’s the potential quandary that you could be dosing for high carbs yet eating low carbs, which could take your blood sugar levels too low.
