Introduction: Some studies have shown a high frequency of eating disorders in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, which has a potential impact on the treatment and prognosis of these patients. Objective: To investigate the prevalence of body dissatisfaction and the presence of changes in eating behavior in diabetic patients according to the literature. Materials and Methods: This research consists of an integrative review carried out from a bibliographic survey in the PUBMED and Virtual Health Library (VHL) search platforms. Results: It is observed that people who have Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and eating disorders (ED) have factors in common. Discussion: Patients with eating disorders coexisting with DM may have unhealthy methods to maintain weight control. Some of the methods are: vomiting, using laxatives and skipping insulin doses. These methods are associated with poor glycemic control, as well as the presence of overweight and obesity in patients. It is worth emphasizing that this type of behavior is more reported in patients with type 2 DM compared to type 1 patients.
