Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate if slow release starch (SRS) could be used to control/limit hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetics. Ten type-1 diabetic volunteers were fitted with continuous glucose monitors for two periods of 3 days when undertaking their normal routine or when consuming 60¿g SRS before sleep. The average number of nocturnal hypoglycaemic episodes where no SRS was consumed over 3 days was 2.7¿±¿2.0 but only 0.7¿±¿1.1 after SRS consumption before sleep. The duration of these events was equivalent to 318¿±¿282 and 140¿±¿337¿min, respectively.
