Eating Disorders and Type 1 Diabetes|
The term diabulimia pertains to people (usually adolescent girls) with type 1 diabetes who misuse insulin for weight control. Body image and weight are concerns of many teens, and girls with type 1 diabetes are no exception. Some teens without diabetes practice risky behaviors (binging/purging, laxatives, severe eating limits, and/or excessive exercise) to limit weight and body fat. . . .
