About this weeks guest

After visiting Canada in the last episode, let’s head back to Melbourne Australia to meet Georgie Peters. Goergie is fostering with her patient advocacy new dialogues on topics such as diabetes AND eating disorder, body image, LGBTQ+ experiences, racial inequality within health care and more. We discuss, how diabetes and eating disorders can be double isolating and how juggling constantly with diet and carb counting can pave the way into obsessive control over blood glucose, body size and food.

In this episode Georgie and I explore:
💙 diabetes challenges disordered eating

💙 body images and self worth

💙 diabulimia

When people say:
“You need to control your diabetes better…”

“….It’s not that we wake up and decide
to have blood sugars of 25.
We don’t want this to happen!
There is always a reason for it to happen
– Georgie Peters

living with diabetes,
 are the experts in diabetes!”
