193. Recovery from Eating Disorders with Insulin-Dependent Diabetes

Tuesday, October 23
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
CE: 1.5

Session Level 3 - Advanced

Women with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) have 2.4 times the risk of developing an eating disorder than those without diabetes. They often intentionally restrict insulin as a hyperglycemic calorie purge. Eating disorders in T1DM convey a greater risk of diabetes complications. While eating disorders are already a lethal psychiatric concern, this dual diagnosis represents an even more serious health problem. Dietitians can be the first diabetes team members to recognize eating disorders; however, they lack training on this issue and may not know how to help. This presentation will fill this critical knowledge gap and present an overview of eating disorders in T1DM. Susan Weiner will discuss the dietitian’s role in the recovery process for patients suffering from this deadly disorder. Asha Brown will discuss her own successful recovery and the importance of utilizing a multidisciplinary team, and will share insights from working with recovering individuals through the “We Are Diabetes” program.
