    Has anyone ever suffered from this?

    Is so, where did you go for help and what did they do?

    There's another site here:

    The best place to go for help is probably your GP or DSN - whichever you feel most confident speaking to. Eating disorders are horrible, and diabetes just makes it worse. Before you speak to someone, think about what kind of support would help you and what your biggest problems are. It might help to keep a diary for a few days. That way you can show them and not have to talk too much.

    Sending you best wishes. X

    Hi @LittleFraggle

    I spent 3 years in a dance school & seen eating disorders.. (There were no other Ds where I trained.) Though I personally believe "diabulimia" is a medication issue too..?!

    Your moving in the right direction asking the question..
    I would agree with @azure regarding an honest diary. Including the skipping of insulin.

    Persevere with finding the right help. You will thank yourself one day!
