Default No, Carbs Are Not Necessary for Kids with Type 1 Diabetes

No, Carbs Are Not Necessary for Kids with Type 1 Diabetes

Yesterday in the 2020 American Diabetes Association’s Scientific Sessions, Dr. Carmel Smart, pediatric diabetes dietician, debated Dr. Belinda Lennerz, pediatric endocrinologist, on the use of low carb diets in children with Type 1 diabetes. Dr. Smart advocates for including carbohydrates in the diets of children with Type 1 diabetes, an approach I do not agree with.

My experience growing up with Type 1 diabetes has taught me that low carb diets are vital to achieving normal blood sugar. I started a low carb diet in 2013 when I was 9 years old, a few months after my diagnosis.

What a perfect explanation ... written by a 16 year old! He could have debated this well.
