Eating Disorders 101
Let’s understand the stakes - eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder. The mortality rate for anorexia alone is 12 times higher than all causes of death among 15-24 year old females. That being said, getting proper treatment at the onset of an eating disorder is vital. Proper treatment involves a multidisciplinary team including a therapist, nutritionist, and psychiatrist, all with extensive eating disorder experience.
The specific cause of an eating disorder can vary greatly from person to person, but it is rarely a simple issue of wanting to look a certain way or an issue about food itself. Eating disorder treatment involves looking at the underlying issues and treating the behaviors of the eating disorder (restricting or purging food, binge eating, over exercising) as a symptom rather than a disease. Often times the patient is expressing a certain feeling or feelings through the use of eating disordered behaviors. By getting to the root of the disorder and teaching healthy life skills to replace unhealthy behaviors we can truly put an end to the cycle.
