Read the Perspective from Jill Hamilton, MD, FRCPC

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — Children with type 1 diabetes who have a balanced school day schedule, which includes two 45-minute breaks, have worsening glycemic control compared with those on the traditional school schedule, which contains three breaks, according to retrospective research presented here.

Investigators compared 53 students with type 1 diabetes (mean age, 11 years) on the traditional school schedule with 64 (mean age, 10 years) who were on the balanced school day schedule.
