Abstract: The aim of this study was to describe the eating habits and the dietary nutritional intakes of patients affected by myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). The participants, 32 women and 20 men suffering from DM1 and followed at the Clinique des maladies neuromusculaires de Jonquière completed a three days food journal (2 week days and 1 week-end day). Among these patients, 13.5% were underweight and 51.9% were overweight or obese. The mean carbohydrate and lipid intakes did not respect the acceptable macronutrient distribution range. In addition, the mean intakes were insufficient for most of the micronutrients. The consumption of foods from the four food groups was generally inferior to Canada’s recommendations. Results demonstrated that many individuals suffering from DM1 have an inadequate diet.
