The article discusses a study which determined the impact of a gluten-free diet (GFD) on the growth and glycemic control in children with diabetes mellitus (DM) and asymptomatic celiac disease (CD). Clinical care protocol for patients with DM at Connecticut Children's Medical Center is described along with the process of identifying the research subjects. Results of the study of CD patients non-CD patients are discussed with emphasis on body mass index (BMI), height Z-score and blood sugar control that did not improve due to GFD.
