Uncooked cornstarch (UCCS) loads in 14 patients with type 1 glycogenosis revealed that satisfactory glycaemia was achieved for a median of 4.25 hours (range 2.5 to 6). Length of glycaemia was related weakly to UCCS dose, but not to patient age or measures of metabolic control. Careful monitoring is required during UCCS treatment.(Arch Dis Child 1996; 74:546-547)
