About the treatment of eating disorders
Treatment of eating disorders is often lengthy. Anorexia can have serious, life-threatening consequences such as heart failure, osteoporosis and damage to the liver and kidneys. But with early initiation of treatment, the prognosis is usually good.
A treatment plan is tailor-made for the individual patient and will typically involve weekly weighing, follow-ups on food intake, psycho-education about eating disorders and cognitive behavior therapy. Medication as a supplement to psychotherapy may be beneficial to consider if conditions such as anxiety, obsessions/compulsions or depressive phases are present in addition to the eating disorder.
