Summary Complementary and alternative therapies (CAM) are widely used in the general community and by people with diabetes, including children and adolescents; the latter usually use CAM on the advice of their parents. Children/parents use a range of CAM including herbal medicines, vitamins and minerals, essential oils (aromatherapy) as well as non-medicine CAM such as massage. The main reasons children/parents use CAM is to manage symptoms, improve metabolic control, prevent complications and as a supplement to insulin. There are benefits and risks to using CAM depending on the age of the child, the particular CAM used and their capacity to make an informed choice and understand the consequences of their choices. Health professionals need a broad understanding of CAM, to be aware that children/parents use CAM, to ask about CAM use and monitor potential beneficial and negative effects.
