The primary objective of this randomized crossover study is to determine whether a very low carbohydrate diet improves glycemic changes (measured by continuous glucose monitors) when compared to a standard carbohydrate diet in youth with type 1 diabetes.
The secondary objectives of the study are to compare metabolic changes after 2 weeks on each diet using the 2-step hyperinsulinemic euglycemic-hypoglycemic clamp and stable isotope infusions. The euglycemic portion of the clamp will allow us to determine the hepatic glucose production and adipose tissue lipolysis. Secondary objectives also include measuring the neurohormonal response to hypoglycemia after 2 weeks on each diet.
