Can I use Nupo if I have type 1 diabetes?

Yes, it is safe to make use of Nupo Diet Shakes which are VLCD (Very Low-Calorie Diet), if you have type 1 diabetes. It is important to note that you should consult your doctor (diabetes specialist) before you start a diet program. The reason being, that the insulin dose should be reduced first or there could be a risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). For patients in treatment that includes meal-based insulin, it is a good idea to consult a dietitian, to make the insulin dose match with the carbohydrate amount in each meal VLCD every day.
