DIABULIMIA: Diabetes + Eating Disorders; What It Is and How to Treat It: A Guide for Individuals and Families; A Tool for Health Personnel

“I am forty and have been battling with diabetes and eating disorders for twenty-five years… I am wheelchair bound and have no hope now… When I tried to find help there was not a single book that addressed this terrible thing… Please do something to help the young ones…” Outcries like this were the driving force behind the birth of this groundbreaking book. Grace Huifeng Shih, RD, MS brings this once-secret disease/disorder out into the open and offers hope to those suffering, their families, and their health providers. Diabulimia (ED-DMT1, clinicians’ term), a deadly combination in which people with type 1 diabetes manipulate insulin so they will lose weight, causes permanent injury if left untreated. Grace’s compassion and expertise in both eating disorders and diabetes; stories from her clients and their loved ones she works with everyday; along with the editing and review by 15 clinicians (endocrinologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, diabetes nurse practitioners, nurse managers, pediatricians, adolescent medicine physicians, ophthalmologists, nephrologists and neurologists) make this book invaluable for medical and non-medical readers alike. For individuals: The 18 stories here share the struggle individuals face, and the relief they find knowing they are not alone. The voice of diabulimia is finally heard! The chapter “Nutrition and Diabulimia” is designed to help those searching for a healthy, safe means of weight loss. For families and friends: Be encouraged and relieved to find recovery is possible through the multilayered treatment this book outlines. Learn how to recognize and circumvent the desperate ploys individuals with diabulimia use as subterfuge to avoid weight gain, and be better equipped to help them. For health personnel, educators and group leaders: Here, the pathology of this group of patients is explained, as are ways to identify high risk individuals through skillful interviewing. With chapters such as “Hospitalization, Step by Step Guidelines” and “What Works and What Doesn’t”, the book is a unique resource as well as an invaluable tool.

Cardiovascular Signals in Diabetes Mellitus: A New Tool to Detect Autonomic Neuropathy (Cardiology Research and Clinical Development Series)

Early detection of sub-clinical autonomic dysfunction is of vital importance in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) for the prevention of subsequent serious adverse consequences. Reduction in heart rate variability (HRV) is now regarded as the earliest indicator of cardiovascular dysregulation in DM. HRV has traditionally been quantified using linear measures, which describe the magnitude of RR interval oscillations, but are insufficient to characterise complex heart rate dynamics. While HRV is mostly mediated by parasympathetic nervous system, beat-to-beat blood pressure recordings may provide information regarding sympathetic activity. A variety of novel measures has been developed to quantify non-linear features of cardiovascular signals, providing information on the complexity of the dynamical system involved in the genesis of these short-term fluctuations. In this book, it is demonstrated that novel non-linear methods are often more sensitive to autonomic dysregulation than linear methods and therefore may improve the diagnostic power of cardiovascular variability analysis for cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in DM. Our data indicate that cardiovascular dysregulation progresses in relatively short time frames, depending on the history of DM. Further, its progression appears to be associated with glycemic control. Different methods of cardiovascular variability analysis can provide mutually independent information and therefore should be used simultaneously for a comprehensive analysis of autonomic dysfunction to identify patients at risk for autonomic neuropathy.
