The deliberate manipulation and/ or omission of insulin in order to lose weight is a very real and very dangerous issue among type 1 diabetics. This petion is to raise awareness of the issue with a view to getting the aforementioned condition recognised as a diagnosable and treatable mental illness, just as anorexia and bulimia are. Current research indicates that anywhere up to 50% of type 1 diabetics engage in this practice putting themselves into ketoacidosis. EVERYTIME THIS OCCURS IT CARRIES A 15% CHANCE OF DEATH. Please sign this petion and help us get the recognition and treatment options that we deserve.
