Park Nicollet Hosts Conference to Explore the Best Treatment of Diabulimia.

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Leaders in the fields of diabetes and eating disorders from across the U.S. and Canada will convene in Minneapolis to begin the process of setting international standards for treatment of the dual diagnosis of these two disorders. Organizers want to raise awareness, collect current best practices, define research questions and submit a peer reviewed paper to a major medical journal critically reviewing this field. They also hope to identify international centers for treatment and establish an ongoing collaborative network.

"It's time to get the experts together, not only to review the research, but to learn from each other," says Richard Bergenstal, MD, Executive Director of the International Diabetes Center at Park Nicollet, and co-host of the conference.
