Diabetes and eating disorders

Ginny Birrell


Introduction: The incidence of both type 1 diabetes and eating disorders in young people is increasing. The combination of these disorders requires a multidisciplinary approach to management

Methods: Background information of these disorders will be provided with a structured approach to recognition and assessment

Discussion/Conclusion: Having an inquisitive mind to the possibility of eating disorders in patients with Type 1 diabetes will lead to earlier and improved recognition. Use of junior marsipan as an assessment tool for severity will aid decision making. A joint MDT approach is required across diabetes team and eating disorder teams for successful management.
