Abstract:OBJECTIVE- To evaluate the relationship between media consumption habits, physical activity, socioeconomic status, and glycemic control in youths with type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS- In the cross-sectional study, self-report questionnaires were used to assess media consumption habits, physical activity, and socioeconomic status in 296 children, adolescents, and young adults with type 1 diabetes. Clinical data and HbA1c levels were collected. Risk factors were analyzed by multiple regression. RESULTS- Youths with type 1 diabetes (aged 13.7 6 4.1 years, HbA1c 8.7 6 1.6%, diabetes duration 6.1 6 3.3 years) spent 2.9 6 1.8 h per day watching television and using computers. Weekly physical activity was 5.1 6 4.5 h. Multiple regression analysis identified diabetes duration, socioeconomic status, and daily media consumption time as significant risk factors for glycemic control. CONCLUSIONSdDiabetes duration, socioeconomic status, and daily media consumption time, but not physical activity, were significant risk factors for glycemic control in youths with type 1 diabetes.
