Managing physical risk in anorexia nervosa

  • William Rhys Jones, John F. Morgan and Jon Arcelus
Summary

Eating disorders encompass physical, psychological and social pathologies that increase health risk. Anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality of any psychiatric disorder, but patients are not always managed by specialist eating disorders services and the duty of care sometimes falls to the general psychiatrist. This article is an aide-memoire for assessing and managing physical risk in patients with anorexia nervosa.
