The prevalence of co-occurring eating disorders and diabetes is estimated to be as high as 40%. Historically, the focus has been on insulin omission (“diabulimia”) and type 1 diabetes, but we have learned in 15 years of treating this co-occurring diagnosis that this intersection reaches well beyond just insulin omission and impacts all types of diabetes.

This program will discuss the prevalence, identification, and treatment of co-occurring diabetes and eating disorders. Through four case studies with CGM data, attendees will learn ways these illnesses intersect and how they can collaborate with a team to support their patient to improve self-management behaviors and psychosocial and metabolic health outcomes.

Learning Outcome

Attendees will have the knowledge to recognize signs and symptoms of a possible eating disorder in people with diabetes and will be able to support them and their self-management behaviors by working in collaboration with an interprofessional team.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
• Identify symptoms, behaviors, or glucose/CGM patterns in a person that could indicate an eating disorder.
• Recall strategies to initiate a conversation with and support a person with diabetes with a suspected eating disorder in their self-management behaviors.
• Describe treatment principles to manage co-occurring eating disorders and diabetes within an interprofessional team.

Activity Type

This is a knowledge-based learning activity. This 90-minute online session includes a presentation followed by a question-and-answer period.
