30 miles a day for 30 days… that’s no mean feat!!!
Today marks day 1 of Gavin’s 30/30 Challenge! For those of you who don’t know about this, Gavin Griffiths is running 30 miles a day for 30 days in a row!
He has heard about the excellent work we do at DWED and has kindly offered to include us in his run. On Monday 13th May he will be running from Manchester to Liverpool (start and end point TBC) and has agreed to dedicate this day to the memory or our Sian seen as he will be running in her neck of the woods!

DWED is currently collating information on services across the UK who are experienced/ interested in our demographic. Do you work in a great Diabetes Center or provide specialist care to Type 1 Diabetics who have Eating Disorders? If so then please answer the questions below, email them to us and we will put your service on the Helpfinder. The idea is to create a cross network of those working in Eating Disorders and Diabetes so that our members will have a clear care pathway in the future.
Please confirm that you treat those with type 1 diabetes who also have Eating disorders, including those who deliberately manipulate/ omit insulin:
What type of service are you?
Where is your service based?
Who do you care for (i.e. age limits)?
What is your catchment area?
How to get a referral?
If self referral what is the process?
If GP/ Diabetes team referral who should be asked for?
What approaches are offered?
Do you have any further details?

Carers Network set up

We are setting up a carer network for friends, relatives and partners.

Hey! I'm Georgie, I'm quite involved with the type 1 diabetes community in Australia, and am currently trying to start up a support network for people with diabulimia online, we have basically no resources to aid recovery over here!!! would you mind if I started another tumblr about diabulimia, but one that is more based on submissions, confessions, asks and recovery tactics? I'm hoping to grow from a tumblr to a forum, and eventually an organisation, but I'm starting small ;)
No of course I wouldn’t, the more the merrier :) only thing I would say though is be careful about posting numbers, they can be very very triggering (and I personally find tumblr to be quite triggering anyway). Good luck and if I can do anything to help let me know x
