About the Author

Aarti Sharma was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes in 2000. She holds a bachelors of science in chemistry from the University of Illinois, Chicago. She is a former recipient of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, American Scandinavian Foundation Fellowship, and Endocrine Society NIH Research Grant. She is currently completing her medical training at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

"While eating disorders in type 1 diabetes represent a serious women's health problem in diabetes, relatively little is known about best treatment practices and strategies for prevention. Ms. Sharma has made a significant and comprehensive contribution to raising awareness and understanding of eating disorders and type 1 diabetes."

"This book is an incredible summary of the available knowledge on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment option of diabulimia, a condition which has neither been recognized nor viewed as a medical disease for many years. It is extremely important to be able to diagnose its medical and psychological complications. I would definitely recommend this book for any level of health care professionals involved in the care of type I diabetes individuals."
- Marina Basina, M.D.
Clinical Assistant Professor

Division of Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism

"Aarti's book is the first of its kind; a much needed resource for patients and clinicians alike in the battle against diabulimia. It shows an in-depth understanding of how this disease works and the devastating effect it can have. This should be required reading for every healthcare professional working in the field of diabetes."
- Erin M. Akers, CEO of Diabulimia Helpline

"Ms. Sharma's expertise in diabetes combines with her personal history of struggling with "diabulimia" to afford us the leverage of her rare vantage point. Her knowledge about "diabulimia" brings readers to explore not only what the illness is and how it develops, but more importantly, what we can do about it."
- Maryjeanne Hunt, author of Eating to Lose: Healing from a Life of Diabulimia (Demos Health)
