Clinical Trial – Carbohydrate Content in the Diet – Type 1 Diabetes

Vastra Gotaland Region aims to study a diet with a moderate amount of carbohydrates and compare it with a traditional diabetic diet with a higher content of carbohydrates on mean glucose level, high and low glucose levels, and the risk of ketoacidosis in patients with type 1 diabetes. The glucose levels will be measured by blinded continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).

The trial has a cross-over design and 12 weeks in duration, where patients will be randomized to; 1) a diet with moderate carbohydrate content for 4 weeks and 2) a traditional diabetes diet for 4 weeks and with a wash-out period between for 4 weeks. The two diets will both be healthy and planned by a dietitian. There will be 50 subjects included in the study.
