Level 1: The Medical Side - When Diabetes and Disordered Eating Collide
Research reflects that the prevalence of eating disorders in patients with IDDM1 is 30+%. Binge eating disorder in those with DM2 has been estimated to be even more common. Despite this high occurrence, professionals who care for diabetics are frequently unable to identify the common signs and symptoms of disordered eating in their patients. The inability to recognize disordered eating is due in part to the frequent overlap with disordered eating behaviors and symptoms of diabetes. This talk provides a unique opportunity for professionals who care for those with all forms of diabetes to learn more about disordered eating and how it may present in their diabetic patients and negatively impact their prognosis. This EDRDPRO Webinar provides a unique opportunity for health care professionals of all disciplines in various settings to learn how to identify disordered eating and how best to address it once identified. The talk will include case studies of patients who presented with eating disorders that were undetected by their primary care providers and endocrinologists. Participants in this webinar will leave with a better understanding of the overlap between eating disorders and diabetes and how best to recognize and treat those struggling with both.
