Eating disorders and disordered eating

Finally, I’ve managed to get round to writing my second blog based on the talks I attended at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference. This blog focuses on eating disorders and disordered eating in occurrence with diabetes.

Last week I was very fortunate to attend the Diabetes UK Professional Conference at the ACC Liverpool.

Have you got the good or bad Diabetes?

When telling people that I’m diabetic, I’m sometimes faced with the question; “do you have the good or bad one?” My internal response to that is always a huge sigh of exasperation, however on the outside I hold it together and reply “there is no good or bad type of diabetes.” Being diabetic is notContinue reading “Have you got the good or bad Diabetes?”
