Girls with diabetes mellitus (DM) (N = 21, age 11-17 years) completed measures of objective overeating episodes (OOE) and objective bulimic episodes (OBE) from the EDE-Q. Data regarding metabolic control (HbA1c) were obtained through a national diabetes register. 41 % of the girls had one or more episodes of OOE, and 29 % had one or more episodes of OBE in the preceding month. Significant higher HbA1c were found among girls with than without episodes of OOE ( 9.1 versus 8.1, p = .033), and among girls with than without episodes of OBE ( 9.4 versus 8.1, p = .013).
