- Disturbed Eating among Children and Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes
Eating disorders are more common among individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) compared to people without diabetes. The co-occurrence of T1D and ED increases the risk of poorer diabetes regulation and development of diabetes-related complications. The objective of the study is to validate a diabetes-specific screening tool, to estimate the prevalence, severity and characteristics of DEB and ED in Danish children and adolescents with T1D, and to correlate DEB and ED to clinical variables.
