Bulimia Nervosa a Problem for Type 1 Females

A higher prevalence of bulimia nervosa

| Nov 1, 2005

Type 1 diabetes is associated with a higher prevalence of bulimia nervosa in females,” say researchers at Florence University School of Medicine in Florence, Italy.

In a study involving 748 and 1,587 female subjects with and without type 1 diabetes, respectively, the prevalence of anorexia nervosa in type 1 diabetic subjects was not significantly different from that of the nondiabetic control subjects. However, bulimia nervosa—binge eating or purging—was significantly higher in diabetic patients (1.73 percent) than in the controls (0.69 percent).
