The trend of increasing obesity and impaired metabolic control in people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) suggests novel, achievable lifestyle changes are needed. Low carbohydrate diets (LCD; <130g per day) may represent a means to improve glycaemic control and metabolic health. Secondly, research conducted on people without T1D suggests that training with reduced carbohydrate availability enhances metabolic adaptation compared to training with normal or high carbohydrate availability. However, these “train low” practices have not been tested in athletes with T1D. This review aims to (1) investigate the known pros and cons of LCDs in people with T1D; (2) discuss whether there is potential for LCDs in recreationally active individuals with T1D; (3) discuss carbohydrate restriction strategies for athletes with T1D as a means to improve training adaptation alongside improved glycaemic control.
