The articles included in this issue of On the Cutting Edge highlight the client presentations one may see in concurrent diagnoses of an eating disorder and Tl DM and T2DM, psychological characteristics and tools to utilize in your nutrition counseling sessions. The articles are also designed to help RDNs specializing in diabetes care understand the complexity, varied treatment approaches, and care-team model of working with patients who have diabetes and disordered eating.
