Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa—New Evidence-Based Guidelines. 3.2.1. Treatment Setting For adults: Similar to the German guideline [14], all remaining guidelines (excluding the Danish [40] and WFSBP guidelines [47]) recommend outpatient treatment as a first treatment option, suggesting day patient or inpatient treatment as a more intensive treatment option if outpatient treatment proves ineffective [38,39,41,43,44,46,48].

The German guideline states, however, that in some cases this ‘stepped-care’ approach may not be appropriate. Inpatient treatment is recommended in cases with a BMI <15 kg/m², rapid or continuing weight loss (>20% over 6 months), high physical risk, severe co-morbid conditions or denial of illness. If these criteria are met, an inpatient setting may be necessary for initial treatment. Likewise, all remaining guidelines (excluding the Danish and WFSBP guidelines) also suggest more intense treatment settings from the outset in cases of severe medical instability. 3.2.2.

Table 2. 3.2.3. 3.2.4. Assessment and clinical management of bone disease in adults with eating disorders: a review | Journal of Eating Disorders | Full Text. Studies published in the English language between 1996 and 2016 were searched in PubMed. We used keywords for the search including “anorexia nervosa” and “bone density” and then manually selected relevant papers based on the number of included subjects, journal impact factor and participant age range. Treatment-specific articles for this patient population were searched using additional keywords such as “premenopausal” and “treatment” and randomized controlled trials were favored for review.

Several articles were referenced prior to 1996 that provided essential baseline data for this population that were not found in the abovementioned search criteria. Definition The World Health Organization (WHO) and International Society of Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) clearly define “osteopenia” and “osteoporosis” in postmenopausal women and men over the age of 50 [15, 16]. Prevalence Reduced BMD is frequently seen in patients with eating disorders [9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22]. Clinical Applications of Orthorexia Nervosa (Part 3 of 3) – This blog wraps up a three-part series on orthorexia nervosa (ON). If you haven’t already, be sure to read Part 1 and Part 2, in which I provide historical context, recommended diagnostic criteria, and state of the research related to ON. This final blog post will focus on clinical strategies for screening and treating ON.

Screening for ONWhile health care providers still are awaiting official diagnostic criteria, it’s possible to screen for an unhealthy obsession with nutrition and health in your practice. Keep the proposed diagnostic criteria close by, and, if you suspect someone is at risk, consider asking some of the following questions: Are you spending more time thinking about your food choices than you wish you were? Do you find that the main barometer of how you feel about yourself on any given day is based on how you’ve eaten? Make a referral to a mental health provider. Also consider exposing your client to their moderately feared foods. Like this: Like Loading... Related. Eating disorders: recognition and treatment | Guidance and guidelines. This guideline covers assessment, treatment, monitoring and inpatient care for children, young people and adults with eating disorders. It aims to improve the care people receive by detailing the most effective treatments for anorexia nervosa, binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa.

This guideline updates and replaces NICE guideline CG9 (January 2004). Your responsibility The recommendations in this guideline represent the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. Local commissioners and/or providers have a responsibility to enable the guideline to be applied when individual health professionals and their patients or service users wish to use it. Commissioners and providers have a responsibility to promote an environmentally sustainable health and care system and should assess and reduce the environmental impact of implementing NICE recommendations wherever possible.

Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of eating disorders. Medical stabilisation Admission to hospital is indicated if the person is at imminent risk of serious medical complications, or if outpatient treatment is not working (Beumont et al., 2003). Indicators of high medical risk requiring consideration for admission (see Table 3) include any one of the following: heart rate <40 bpm or tachycardia on standing due to cardiac deconditioning with >20 bpm increase in heart rate, blood pressure <90/60 mm Hg or with >20 mm Hg drop on standing, hypokalaemia, hypoglycaemia, hypophosphataemia, temperature <35.5°C, or BMI < 14 kg/m2.

It is important to note that patients can report feeling well even when the risk of cardiac arrest is high. Admission is also indicated if there is rapid weight loss, several days of no oral intake, supervision required for every meal, uncontrolled purging or exercise, or suicidality.
