Ask Dr. Robyn: Does my friend have Diabulimia? Is Diabulimia a “big deal?”
I received a question from Jennifer in NJ whose friend has Diabetes and is currently losing a lot of weight. Jennifer is concerned about whether her friend might have Diabulimia and if her behaviors might be causing a real problem. This video answers, “What is Diabulimia?” and “How do I know if someone might be having a problem with Diabulimia?”
If you or someone you know is having a problem with Diabulimia, please get help.
