Abstract

At the state of art it's unknown the correlation between diabetes and lower gastrointestinal disorders. Some studies show a significantly higher prevalence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in patients with type I diabetes in particular complicated by autonomic neuropathy. No data exists about gastrointestinal methane production in patients with diabetes and autonomic diabetic neuropathy. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the correlation of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and gastrointestinal methane production with metabolic control and daily insulin requirements in patients with type 1 diabetes and. autonomic diabetic neuropathy.
