    Hello,
    I was just wondering if anyone has Type 1 but suffers from ARFID like me
    I find it hard trying new foods, I carb count for that food but then I don't like it, so then I go on and have a hypo. At times it's very annoying

    Hi @cbish8 I just wanted to say 3 things:
    I have looked at this site:
    https://www.beateatingdisorders.org...intake disorder,overall amount eaten, or both.
    I knew a 5 year old Type 1 who from the beginning would only eat tomatoes lettuce and eggs. When her mother took her to the GP, she reckoned that the girl had somehow realised these foods were the only ones that weren't making her feel ill. She was diagnosed at that point.
    Your problem is very real and as you say annoying. Perhaps you could try the helpline on the above site. I used to be a Type1 outpatient at King's College Hospital, London. The Maudsley is part of King's and is world famous for its work.
    I hope you succeed. Good luck
