Abstract

The main purpose of this thesis was to examine the benefits and risks of long-term consumption of ketogenic diet (KD) in adultswith type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1 DM). The findings of this thesis suggest that the consumption of KD in adults with T1 DM isassociated with excellent glycaemic control, but with some dyslipidaemia being experienced by some participants. Exercise isalso safe for these individuals, since irrespective of exercise type (e.g sprint, graded exercise, endurance exercise), intensityand duration, exercise does not increase the risks of both ketoacidosis and hypoglycaemia during and early after exercise.
