Diabetes Foundations Program
Diabetes Foundations consists of 3-4 virtual diabetes education sessions to provide a solid foundation of diabetes education and blood sugar management that supplements the work already being done with your primary eating disorder treatment team.
Diabetes Foundations can be helpful for you if you have a history of disordered eating or an eating disorder, and your eating disorder symptoms are stable, but you are hesitant to go to your hospital diabetes education program or "just any" diabetes educator due to your history of disordered eating. This program was created for you!
Diabetes Foundations can be helpful for you if you are working with an eating disorder treatment team or have been stable in your recovery for some time but have had the following changes and don't feel comfortable going to "just any" diabetes education program:
You are newly diagnosed with diabetes (type 1, type 2, gestational, or LADA) or prediabetes.
You are ready and interested in learning more about diabetes and blood sugar at this point in your recovery or life.
You've been living with diabetes for some time and you've had a change in your life (like the addition of a new medication, an additional diagnosis, new mental health concerns, etc.).
You've been caring for your diabetes for a while without too many issues, but your blood sugar has been increasing (or staying higher without decreasing even though you're doing all the "right things") without any obvious changes in your life.
Who Diabetes Foundations is NOT for:
You're needing regular support with your disordered eating or eating disorder and you don't already have a primary eating disorder dietitian.
You need support for your eating disorder AND diabetes management, but you don't already have a primary eating disorder dietitian.
You believe you might have an eating disorder.
If any of the above apply, please do not hesitate to reach out for help! The Alliance for Eating Disorders may be able to help connect you to a dietitian with availability: https://www.allianceforeatingdisorders.com/.
