Every month DWED releases specialist content relating to a unique topic relating to diabetes and eating disorders. For this we are always looking for case studies about real life experiences which will usually be in the form of audio  and  transcript interviews or source-penned pieces.. Do not worry or feel under any amount of pressure to speak to us on via phone as a recording if you feel unable; we completely appreciate that this can often be difficult and anxiety-provoking. Alternatively we can send you a set of questions to reply to via email or you can simply provide insight i your own words in the message field below (the only mandatory field) or after getting in touch so we can then get back to you personally. Moreover, Carers, family and friends of a loved one with ED-DMT1 are also welcome to provide perspective from their point of view as onlookers..

To give examples, some of the past topics we have covered are:

  • Pregnancy
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Tattoos and Piercings
  • Mental Health co-morbidites (anxiety, depression, OCD, BPD, Bipolar etc)
  • Family relationships
  • Men with type 1 diabetes and eating disorders
  • Work and benefits
  • The wait between becoming ill and pursuing/receiving treatment
  • Complications: retinopathy

For May  to continue the focus on complications that may result from T1-ED and Diabulimia our featured subject will be neuropathy. We are looking to speak to anyone with experience of nerve damage who feels they have a story to share. We are interested in hearing how you cope with neuropathy and how you feel about having it. You may want to talk about what treatment you recieve or how it impacts upon your mental health, eating habits and/ror insulin omission.

Please fill in the form below if you would be willing to help and we will be in touch shortly. Thank you so much

If able to be interviewed via phone.
