Diabulimia

October 28, 2015

The excellent Victoria Derbyshire programme included very interesting coverage of Diabulimia today.

Diabulimia is defined as  an eating disorder which may affect those with Type 1 Diabetes.  Diabulimia is the reduction of insulin intake to lose weight.  Diabulimia is considered a dual diagnosis disorder: where one has diabetes as well as an eating disorder.  While diabulimia is generally associated with use of insulin, an individual with diabetes may also suffer from another eating disorder as well.

      It was shared with pleasure, in an effort to raise awareness of something that was new to me, but very important. Best wishes.
