The aim of our study was to evaluate the efficacy of dietary education in inducing modification of the diet and to measure biochemical parameters in 36 children and adolescents with IDDM. At the beginning of the study, each patient was evaluated as follows: food intake (by the method of the 24-h recall for 3 days), auxological parameters, biochemical parameters. Thereafter a program of nutritional guidelines was provided. Subsequent meetings took place at 1-month-intervals. The study ended 3 months later, when all the parameters were completely revalued. We observed improved nutrition in our patients both in terms of total caloric intake and calorie distribution. In particular there was an increase in carbohydrates and a reduction in lipids, reaching the percentage levels recently recommended. With a reduction in lipid intake a significant decrease in LDL cholesterol and a significant increase in HDL cholesterol were noticed in our patients. These modifications are very important for the prevention of arteriosclerosis and thus macrovascular disease. We maintain that dietary education plays an important role in helping children and adolescents with IDDM to follow a suitable diet.
