Diabetes Mellitus - Type 1, Phase I

Metabolic Changes Induced by a Very Low Carbohydrate Diet in Youth With Type 1 Diabetes

What is the purpose of this trial?

As more adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) opt to follow very low carbohydrate diets to improve glucose control, it is becoming increasingly important to study the metabolic and neurological changes that occur on these diets and how these effect patient safety. Understanding the impact of dietary changes on metabolic and neurological factors will help guide clinical advice about the overall safety and efficacy of these diets in the pediatric T1D population. This work will be the basis of future studies testing dietary interventions to improve glycemic control and ensure that these dietary interventions are safe for growing youth with T1D.
