Individuals with type 1 diabetes are 2.5 times more likely to develop an eating disorder, resulting in a dual diagnosis known as ED-DMT1.
This presentation will discuss identification of ED-DMT1 and provide attendees with guidelines and therapeutic interventions for treating both the physical and psychological components of ED-DMT1. Presentation content is appropriate and relevant for clinicians, dietitians, nutritionists, and medical professionals providing all levels of care.
