People who have diabulimia deliberately give themselves less insulin than prescribed or stop taking insulin altogether in the hopes of losing weight. Diabulimia is a severe, dangerous condition that requires effective care. If you or a loved one have this disorder, you are not alone. Treatment is available.
Assessing Your Risk of Diabulimia
Do you think you or your loved one could have diabulimia? You can take a self-assessment to begin to get some answers. A quiz is not an official diagnosis. Only a medical professional can diagnose an eating disorder. However, the assessments can help you evaluate your symptoms and determine if you should seek treatment.
