Type 2 diabetes is prevalent among Black Americans. Stigma associated with type 2 diabetes, both in general and specific to weight, is damaging to self-care, which is crucial for the effective management of diabetes. Family relationships may buffer the negative impact of stress, especially among Black Americans who have historically relied on informal support networks. Our goal was to investigate how type 2 diabetes stigma (H1) and weight stigma (H2) were related to self-care and intuitive eating – a non-restrictive approach to nutrition; H3 predicted that family relationship satisfaction would moderate the relationships predicted in H1 and H2. Black Americans diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (N = 225) were recruited via Qualtrics panels to complete an online survey of self-report measures. We used multiple linear regression to test our hypotheses. Both chronic illness and weight stigma were related as predicted to one subscale of intuitive eating (eating for physical hunger). Our moderation analyses revealed that family relationship satisfaction was protective against the harms of stigma at moderate to high levels. Intuitive eating is a promising non-restrictive treatment option for type 2 diabetes.
