Diabetes on the Rise

Editor's E-Note
Not Just a Woman’s Issue

Eating disorders are a pervasive problem in our society and, as you know, they don’t just affect young girls and women.

In this month’s E-News Exclusive, Today’s Dietitian spoke with RDs about the growing prevalence of eating disorders among boys and men due to a poor body image. Unlike young girls and women with eating disorders, boys and men often go undiagnosed for a variety of reasons. We discuss these reasons, the signs and symptoms to look for, when to make referrals, and the credentials you need to successfully counsel these clients. What’s more, we provide resources to further your education.

Be sure to visit Today’s Dietitian's website at www.TodaysDietitian.com. You'll find great news and information that’s relevant and reliable to daily practice. We welcome your feedback at TDeditor@gvpub.com. Enjoy the e-newsletter and follow Today’s Dietitian on Facebook and Twitter!

Counseling Men With Eating Disorders
By Karen Giles-Smith, MS, RD

Boys and men often have issues with eating, weight, and body image, which can lead to eating disorders. Here’s what to look for in your patients and tips on where to go from there.

When people think of eating disorders, more than likely they conjure images of teenage girls or young women who are struggling with a poor body image. But as you probably know, eating disorders affect almost as many males as females.

The first national survey of individuals with eating disorders found that 0.9% of women and 0.3% of men reported having anorexia nervosa at some point in their lives; 1.5% of women and 0.5% of men had bulimia nervosa; and 3.5% of women and 2% of men had binge-eating disorder.1

Predicts Glycemic Health

The severity of sleep-disordered breathing and nocturnal hypoxemia independently predict both glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), according to a new study presented at the American Thoracic Society’s recent international conference.

“Because people with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome [OSAS] are often overweight or obese, it’s been difficult to interpret earlier studies of the relationship between sleep disordered breathing and metabolic disorders,” says Brian Kent, MBBCh, research fellow at St Vincent's University Hospital in Dublin, Ireland. “We found that OSAS severity and low nocturnal oxygen levels were significant independent predictors of prevalent T2DM and HbA1c levels, even after adjustment for a number of confounding variables, including obesity.”
