Abstract

 



Objective:  To describe successful chiropractic care of a patient with Type I Diabetes. 

 

Clinical Features:  A 4-year-old female with Insulin-Dependent Type I Diabetes presented for a chiropractic evaluation.  Initial examination revealed postural deviations and vertebral subluxations in the cervical, thoracic, and pelvic regions. 

 

Intervention and Outcomes:  The patient was seen a total of 24 visits.  Gonstead technique protocol was followed to administer adjustments to reduce vertebral subluxations. There was a significant decrease in hemoglobin A1C levels which resulted in a lessening of insulin administration.

 

Conclusion:  The chiropractic care of a pediatric patient with Insulin-Dependent Type I Diabetes is presented.  More research is warranted on chiropractic care and diabetes.

 

Key Terms:  chiropractic, Type I diabetes, diabetes mellitus, subluxation, insulin
