About the Authors
  • Eating disorders are known to affect between 1 and 4% of all women, and a smaller proportion of men. This text is designed to provide all health professionals with the practical information they need to treat patients with anorexia nervosa and related eating disorders. A user-friendly structure allows the reader to access information on the basis of physical complaint. The book is divided into five sections, each consisting of a case, discussion of the topic and a summary of key points. For the second edition, sections have been added on Munchausen's syndrome, the medical risk of death, ruminating, Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome, shoplifting, substance use, and patient self-help. The text is supplemented with diagnostic color photographs of important physical manifestations of eating disorders. The text is suitable for all health care professionals involved in eating disorder management, with special information provided for general practitioners, nursing staff, family carers and nutritionists.

    • Fully revised for the second edition with entirely new sections on Munchausen's syndrome, the medical risk of death, ruminating, Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome, shoplifting, substance use, and patient self-help
    • All major medical symptoms are listed separately for quick reference
    • The text is supplemented with colour images necessary for the identification of eating disorder complications

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Almost every chapter includes teaching points with implications for healthcare professionals as well as helpful information to convey to the patient. The integration in the treatment section of the common psychiatric and medical issues in this patient population is very helpful. The book has an abundance of charts, diagrams, and tables and, toward the end, includes a list of protocols and algorithms as well as an index of photographs and key references."
