Helpful or harmful? The impact of the ketogenic diet on eating disorder outcomes in type 1 diabetes mellitus.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2022 Jun 24:1-13. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Division of Biomedical Sciences, Warwick Medical School, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.

Introduction: Eating disorders (EDs) are common complications in people with type 1 diabetes (PwT1D), given the rigid focus on food and insulin dose adjustment. Dietary recommendations for T1D match those for the general population, yet many fail to achieve target HbA1c. Evidence suggests that lower carbohydrate meals and thus reduced insulin requirements may decrease inconsistencies in insulin absorption, maintain euglycemia and weight. Read More

Plant sterol hyperabsorption caused by uncontrolled diabetes in a patient with a heterozygous ABCG5 variant.

J Diabetes Investig 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology, Tazuke Kofukai Medical Research Institute, Kitano Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

Plant sterol intake is widely recommended in patients with cardiovascular risk factors based on the inhibitory effect on intestinal cholesterol absorption. Although plant sterols, once absorbed, can promote atherosclerosis, their intake is believed to be safe because of poor absorption, except in rare hyperabsorbers with homozygous ABCG5/8 mutations. We report a case of new-onset type 1 diabetes accompanied by hypercholesterolemia. Read More

Severe Prolonged SGLT2i-induced Euglycemic Diabetic Ketoacidosis Refractory to Standard Therapy and Dialysis: Case Report and Literature Review.

Oman Med J 2022 May 31;37(3):e373. Epub 2022 May 31.

Department of Critical Care, Tawam Hospital, Al Ain, UAE.

Sodium-glucose cotransporter type 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) are oral hypoglycemic agents that have insulin-independent glucose-lowering effects mediated by increasing the renal excretion of glucose by inhibiting the SGLT2-mediated renal glucose reabsorption. An increasingly recognized complication induced by SGLT2i is euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (eDKA). Here, we describe the case of a 26-year-old male patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus and morbid obesity. Read More
