Control and disordered eating in type 1 diabetes

S. Tierney

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Control is a major topic associated with the management of diabetes due to the importance placed on maintaining healthy blood glucose levels in this condition. Such an outcome can be influenced by individuals' sense of mastery over the disease, and more generally over their environment. In response to a diagnosis of diabetes, the self-management requirements accompanying it, and/or difficulties in other areas of life, patients may decide to undertake behaviours that are detrimental to their well-being. For instance, they may adopt fixated attitudes towards their intake and weight. This paper explores the relationship between disordered eating habits, control and diabetes in those who are insulin dependent. ©2007, Editrice Kurtis.
