Conclusion: Obesity prevalence of our T1D cohort is similar to healthy population in the same ages. Prevalence of MetS is higher in children and adolescents with T1D compared to the obese population in our country. Our study suggests that IDF criteria are more suitable for the diagnosis of MetS in children and adolescents with T1D. PMID: 31434460 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study explored whether sex-related differences might exist in BG responses to RE in individuals with type 1 diabetes.METHODSA secondary data analysis was conducted on pooled data from two studies with identical RE protocols for individuals with type 1 diabetes [n=13 male (16-63 years), 10 female ages (19-45 years)]. The RE session consisted of seven resistance-based exercises performed at 5 pm. Plasma glucose samples were collected pre-, immediately post-, and one hour post-exercise. Interstitial glucose levels were recorded through blinded continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) 24 hours pre-, during and 24 hours post-ex...

Intensive glycemic control reduces the risk of microvascular and macrovascular complications. Furthermore, optimal glycemic control is essential for normal growth and development. Thus, there is a need to monitor and evaluate glycemic control in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Our aim was to audit glycemic control in patients with T1D in a specialized center as per the Society of Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) target recommendations published in 2014.
