Insulin replacement therapy to be one of the main underlying factors. Clarifying these issues and determining whether this weight gain may bring in an increased cardiovascular risk in these patients during their adulthood is critical in order to develop strategies that prevent or at least diminish this evolution. This review aims at updating the anthropometric status and the presence of excess body fat in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes as compared to healthy population, establishing the relevance of the different factors implied and their potential effect on cardiovascular risk.
