“Counting Carbs to Be in Charge”: A Comparison of an Internet-Based Education Module With In-Class Education in Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes

Euglycemic Diabetic Ketoacidosis in a Patient Prescribed Empagliflozin and a Ketogenic Diet: A Case of Misdiagnosed Type 1 Diabetes

AbstractCarbohydrate counting is an essential component of type 1 diabetes education but can be difficult for adolescents to learn. Because adolescents are avid users of technology, an Internet-based education module was compared with an in-class education session in terms of carbohydrate counting accuracy in adolescents with type 1 diabetes. Adolescent participants displayed increased carbohydrate counting accuracy after attending an in-class education session compared with an Internet-based education module. These results suggest that online education is best reserved as an adjunctive therapy to in-class teaching in this population.© 2020 by the American Diabetes Association
