Today, a piece I wrote about diabetes-related eating disorders has been published on The Glow (which is Mamamia‘s health and beauty sister site.)

I’ve written before about this topic, and, following some research i did as part of a work project, have presented findings at conferences. The study we did focused on young women with type 1 diabetes. One of the things that kept coming up again and again was how many of these women thought that they were the only one manipulating insulin for weight loss and, as a result, felt ashamed and unsure of where to turn for help.

Help is available. But we need people to be aware of it. We need to be talking about diabetes-related eating disorders – often referred to as diabulimia. I am really pleased that The Glow has published this (they also published one of pieces during National Diabetes Week) and I think it’s great that this condition is being discussed in mainstream media.
