Description of Presentation:
Living with type 1 diabetes is complicated enough, but then throw in a dual diagnosis of an eating disorder, and the management of the two becomes tricky. Eating disorders paired with diabetes can be a life-threatening combination. Most people are familiar with the term “diabulimia”, and so the thought is a person with type 1 only omits insulin as an eating disorder symptom. But there is much more to this eating disorder then just omitting insulin.
Based on the content of the workshop participants will be able to:
1.List the seven things they need to know about ED-DMT1/diabulimia.
2.Describe why people with diabetes are at increased risk for developing an eating disorder.
3.Identify best communication practices to build a relationship with someone who struggles with ED-DMT1/Diabulimia.
