DIABULIMIA LEFT ME INFERTILE AND GOING BLIND

For years Jeorgia Woodd, 30, abused her body, having succumbed to a condition known as 'diabulimia'. Jeorgia, a diabetic, withheld her insulin injections, because she wanted to lose weight. Diabulimia occurs when insulin-dependant diabetics skip injections to make themselves thinner and it is usually linked to type 1 diabetes, which is where the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, rather than type 2 diabetes, which is associated with obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. Diabulimia can have serious consequences and Jeorgia, a reiki practitioner from Odiham, Hampshire, faces going blind, losing a limb and undergoing a pancreas transplant all because of diabulimia.
