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.
