Peter Adoni is this week’s Health Hero because in helping his son, he also has helped countless others with Type 1 diabetes. When Peter’s son Alex was first starting to play hockey, Alex could not drink the mainstream sports drinks because they contained a lot of sugar and fructose corn syrup. With Type 1 diabetes, people have to be extra careful with the amount of sugars being consumed. Peter soon found out there were no regular sport drinks available to those with diabetes. Peter realized that something had to be done and he took it upon himself to find a solution. Working with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Peter began to search for that solution. Teaming up with a chemist, nutritionist and others, it took 2 years of research and development to come up with a diabetes friendly sports drinks called “NutriTwist Wow Water”. This sports drink only has 36 calories per bottle, low amounts of high fructose corn syrup and the electrolytes come from a small amount of sodium.

Because Peter Adoni needed to find a sports drink for his son, his determination, love and passion has helped numerous athletes with Type 1 diabetes. And this is why, Peter is this week’s Health Hero.
