Ice Cream in the Diet of Insulin-Dependent Diabetic Patients

Ice Cream in the Diet of Insulin-Dependent Diabetic Patients We investigated the effect of ice cream ingestion on blood glucose control in conventionally treated and intensively treated insulin-dependent (type I) diabetic patients. After the ingestion of 100 g of ice cream, plasma glucose excursions as measured by the peak increment (90± 30 mg/dL) and area under the curve (166±59 mg/dL X hour) were modest and not significantly different between the subgroups of intensively treated and conventionally treated diabetics. A small dose (3 to 5 units) of rapid-acting insulin given 30 minutes before ingestion of ice cream reduced the modest plasma glucose excursion. A modest amount of ice cream may be included in weight-maintaining diets of insulin-dependent diabetics. Small doses of rapid-acting insulin prevent any adverse effect of the ice cream on blood glucose control.

Abstract

We investigated the effect of ice cream ingestion on blood glucose control in conventionally treated and intensively treated insulin-dependent (type I) diabetic patients. After the ingestion of 100 g of ice cream, plasma glucose excursions as measured by the peak increment (90± 30 mg/dL) and area under the curve (166±59 mg/dL X hour) were modest and not significantly different between the subgroups of intensively treated and conventionally treated diabetics. A small dose (3 to 5 units) of rapid-acting insulin given 30 minutes before ingestion of ice cream reduced the modest plasma glucose excursion. A modest amount of ice cream may be included in weight-maintaining diets of insulin-dependent diabetics. Small doses of rapid-acting insulin prevent any adverse effect of the ice cream on blood glucose control. (JAMA 1984;251:2825-2827)
