Abstract

[Extract] Disturbed eating behaviours and insulin omission in adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus have concerned diabetes clinicians for decades, yet screening and management protocols using validated tools for this high risk group are lacking. Clinical eating disorders and milder forms of disordered eating can impact negatively on glycaemic control and are associated with serious health consequences (Rydall et al., 1997). Early detection and treatment of disturbed eating thoughts and behaviours is important (Goebel-Fabbri, 2009).
