Introduction

DWED (Diabetics with Eating Disorders) is a registered charity. Recent research shows that not only are females* who have type one diabetes at twice  the risk of developing anorexia or bulimia, as many as 40% of 15 – 30 year olds regularly omit insulin. This practice can have devastating consequences such as organ failure, infertility, blindness and in the worst cases, death. Despite the horrendous complications and staggering prevalence, diabulimia or ED-DMT1 is not diagnosable and there are no current guidelines for the NHS on how to deal with the issue.

DWED's aim is to provide support, awareness, advocacy and action.
