Is your client’s fear of food, carbs and eating normal…or disordered eating?

How does weight bias influence our recognition of eating disorders in patients with type 2 diabetes? How can we support our patients with a thorough, affirming, weight-neutral assessment?

In her talk, “Clearing the Clouds of Bias when Assessing for Eating Disorders in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes,” Ashley Roehrig will offer a way to assess disordered eating in clients with type 2 diabetes.. Ashley is a Health At Every Size® dietitian in Charlotte, NC, and has extensive training in the treatment of eating disorders and is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.

Ashley’s talk will help you identify the ways that disordered eating can present in type 2 diabetes patients, and understand the reasons eating disorders missed or misdiagnosed in this client population. You’ll also learn how providers can screen effectively for eating disorders in type 2 diabetes patients and clients.

The key takeaways of this presentation are how do disordered eating present in TDM2? And why are eating disorders missed or misdiagnosed in TDM2? What can we do as providers to screen effectively for eating disorders in patients with TDM2?
