When you have diabetes, you have to think about food much more often than someone without. But sometimes, all of those food decisions, combined with pressure and perceived loss of control, can turn into a dangerous problem. This week, we tackle a tough subject, what many people call Diabulimia.

Stacey talks to Erin Akers who says she developed an eating disorder that almost took her life as a teenager. She's fought back and founded the Diabulimia Helpline

In our Know Better segment, Stacey shares a study about the rise of T1D in adults in China.

And, on a personal note, Stacey explains that leading a Bar Mitzvah service can be just as tough on blood sugar as playing a full game of football!

Jennifer Stone, best known as Harper on the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, was diagnosed with diabetes four years ago. At the time, she was told to give up her dream of acting. Instead, she found a great care team, got educated and leaned on support of family and friends. She has two movies coming out in 2018. Jennifer has LADA, which is sometimes called type 1.5 and we talk about what that means and why it's often misdiagnosed. 

More about Jennifer's story at Beyond Type 1
