Experimental: Medium chain supplemented diet
Subjects will have a diet during which all meals are supplemented with 4 tablespoons of medium chain triglyceride oil.
Dietary Supplement: Medium chain triglycerides
4 tablespoons/day for 2 weeks
No Intervention: Standard group
Subjects will continue with a standard western diabetes diet.
- Cognitive function tests [ Time Frame: 100 minutes ]Cognitive function will be assessed during hypoglycemia. 3 tests will be carried looking at working memory with number and word recollection.
- Brain activity [ Time Frame: 100 minutes ]The fMRI will be used to assess brain activity during hypoglycemia in the presence of medium chain triglycerides.
