Family therapist and Diabetes Nurse Educator, Joe Solowiejczyk, is back for today's episode to talk about diabetes and eating disorders, specifically in our type 1 teens. Joe and I talk about what eating disorders and disordered eating looks like, the signs and symptoms to watch for and how to help your teen who may be struggling with their relationship with food. It's a heavy topic but an important one.
