Remission Without Insulin Therapy on Gluten-Free Diet in a 6-year Old Boy with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
A 5-year and 10-month old boy was diagnosed with classical type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) without celiac disease. He started on a gluten-free diet and after 2-3 weeks he experienced Remission Without Insulin Therapy. At the initiation of gluten-free diet, HbA1c was 7.8% and was stabilized at 5.8%-6.0% without insulin therapy. Fasting blood glucose was maintained at 4.0-5.0 mmol/l [73.6-92 mg/dL]. At 16 months after diagnosis the fasting blood glucose was 4.1 mmol/l [75.4 mg/dL] and after 20 months he is still without daily insulin therapy. There was no alteration in glutamic acid decarboxylase positivity. The gluten-free diet was safe and without side effects. The authors propose that the gluten-free diet has prolonged remission in this patient with T1DM and that further trials are indicated.
Health-e-Solutions comment: We would love to see further trials on a gluten-free diet, but even more so on the Health-e-Solutions lifestyle. Even though there does not appear to have been an alteration in the antibody activity, the 20 months free of daily insulin therapy with stable blood sugars is a huge benefit. We would love to see if other elements of #TheRomanDiet can impact antibody activity and we invite researchers to create a study for this purpose.
