A Low-Carbohydrate Diet Improves Metabolic Control in a Type 1 Diabetic Child Without Side Effects

Klee Philippe , Stasinaki Aikaterini , Gozzi Tiziana , Schwitzgebel Valérie

Background and Aims: Despite intensive insulin treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1DM), metabolic control remains suboptimal, especially in children. In an attempt to optimize postprandial glycaemia, some families decrease the amount of carbohydrates contained in a meal. While "low-carbohydrate diets" may improve metabolic control in some selected populations, controversies remain around the risk of hypoglycemia and ketoacidosis and the impact of such diet...

Introduction: The COVID-19 pandemic led to regional lockdowns and restrictions associated with changes in lifestyle and quality of life (QoL) thus potentially burdening metabolic control in Diabetes Mellitus (DM). We examined whether the stages of restrictions lead to changes in QoL and metabolic control in children with DM.Methods: Starting in April 2020, this monocentric prospective longitudinal cohort study included c...

Background: Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) abnormalities are considered as early signs of peripheral neuropathy in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). We investigated which determinants NCV is subject to and how it is related to markers of metabolic control.Methods: We included 51 patients treated at the outpatient clinic of paediatric diabetology because of their type 1 DM and randomly assigned them for a nerve condu...
