Abstract: Disordered eating behaviors are common in the adolescent population. These behaviors are especially dangerous for young females with type 1 diabetes due to frequent alterations in insulin levels. This article provides an overview of disordered eating in adolescent females with type 1 diabetes, including prevalence and morbidity, insulin omission and associated health outcomes, risk factors, and suggestions for screening and prevention.
