Screen for Early Eating Disorder Signs (SEEDS)
Researchers at International Diabetes Center and Melrose Center developed the Screen for Early Eating Disorder Signs (SEEDS) to address the increased prevalence of eating disorders in people with type 1 diabetes. The purpose of SEEDS is to identify those at risk of an eating disorder so early interventions can be initiated to prevent or diminish an eating disorder. SEEDS is a brief (20-item; two to five minutes to complete), self-administered screen designed for use in clinical practice or research to identify eating disorder risk. SEEDS includes items across three themes – Body Image, Feelings and Quality of Life; it does not include weight-control behavior items that could influence eating disorder development.
