Abstract Eating behaviour in adolescent males with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) living in central Sweden was compared with that of healthy age-matched male controls using the Eating Disorder Inventory for Children and an interview. The patients were heavier than controls (p = 0.004) and had higher Drive for Thinness scores (p = 0.002). None was diagnosed as having a current eating disorder. CONCLUSION: The results of the study may indicate an increased risk of future eating disorders in males with IDDM.
