Where to find support for People with Diabetes and an Eating Disorder (PWDAED)
We Are Diabetes (WAD) is an organization primarily devoted to providing support, education and awareness for people with type 1 diabetes who suffer from eating disorders. WAD is dedicated to providing guidance and hope to those who are struggling, as well as to their families and loved ones.
The dual diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and an eating disorder (ED-DMT1) is extremely complicated and demands a proper type of professional care; both for the emotional and the physical aspects being treated.
We Are Diabetes has networked with specific treatment centers across the United States that have the experience and the expertise necessary to help those who are suffering from ED-DMT1.
Support services include: treatment center and provider referrals, private coaching, and peer mentorship.
