The co-occurence of binge eating disorder and type 2 diabetes is an intersection of two of my specialities, and something that doesn't get talked about enough in either eating disorder treatment circles or diabetes treatment circles. I'm really interested in exploring how people managing binge eating behaviors balance their diabetes self-care routines and the extent to which the two conditions influence each other. A post I wrote for my clinic's blog (Walden Behavioral Care) was recently published:
Yesterday I had the pleasure of serving as a panelist in a round table discussion of binge eating disorder (BED) treatment for IAEDP's Boston Metro chapter. In addition to serving alongside excellent colleagues like Lisa Du Briel and Bob Bordonaro, there was a great conversation around how eating disorder clinicians can best serve patients struggling with binge eating disorder.
