Disordered eating behavior in youths with diabetes diminishes quality of life

June 10, 2017

SAN DIEGO — Disordered eating behavior in youth and young adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes results in poorer blood glucose control, higher BMI, lower quality of life and higher depressive symptoms compared with those without the behaviors, according to a speaker here.

“Disordered eating behavior as a broader term generally refers to the presence of inappropriate behaviors with eating in order to lose weight,” Angel Siu-Ying Nip, MD, a fellow in endocrinology and diabetes division at the University of Washington, said during a press conference. “It is relatively common in female adults who have type 1 diabetes, and approximately 30% have reported to have some disordered eating behaviors. We think that children with diabetes are also vulnerable with having an intense focus on food and weight control as part of their diabetes management.”
