I am a type 2 insulin dependent diabetic with and eating disorder. I have had therapy and it didn't work. I am a compulsive overeater. What steps can I take to help myself? My night time blood sugar is too high. I have found that making major changes always backfires.

I feel so bad for you! :'( I don't have an eating disorder, but I do so love to eat, and not always what's good for me, either. I crave popcorn and chocolate chips, which I still have once a week. I'm really not in a position to give advice, since I don't know much about eating disorders, but I am diabetic, and I am always hungry. Carrot, celery and pepper sticks, and other raw veggies, can help you to feel full, especially when you drink lots of water, too. Cooked veggies can help, too, but watch the carrots. For some reason, the sugar level in carrots increases when you cook them. Talk to a diabetic dietician about filling, low calorie/carbohydrate food choices. I wish you well with this. Its a constant challenge, but it doesn't have to be a fight. Remember, you have diabetes…diabetes does NOT have YOU! Please keep me posted. I do care! :)
