Overview

This is a practical guide to the medical complications and treatment of anorexia nervosa and related eating disorders. A user-friendly structure allows the reader to access information on the basis of physical complaint (e.g. chest pain) or body system (e.g. neurological or respiratory). Practical guidance is provided on history taking, physical, and laboratory examination, and looking after special categories of patients such as prepubertal, males, adolescents, and during pregnancy. The principles and practice of treatment are fully covered including medical and nutritional therapies. Psychiatric and psychological issues are also addressed and provide details of specific psychological therapies. The text is supplemented with diagnostic colour photographs of important physical manifestations of eating disorders. Although the text is suitable for all health care professionals looking after these patients, special information is provided for general practitioners, nursing staff and family carers and including the patients themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Regina Rosa Lopez, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book serves as a guide to the medical, nutritional, and psychological therapies of anorexia nervosa and related eating disorders. It is divided into medical manifestations by body systems and physical complaints.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide assistance in the understanding, treatment, and management of patients with eating disorders. These are worthy objectives for such a challenging illness. The book meets the authors' objectives for a portion of their intended audience.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is written for medical practitioners, psychiatrists, physicians, pediatricians, general practitioners, and other health professionals involved with eating disorder patients. In my judgment, the book was less targeted toward those in the field of psychology and outpatient psychiatry. The authors are credible authorities on the subject. Together they have over 50 years of experience in the area of eating disorders. Also, each of the authors has edited books and published many articles on the subject.
Features: The book covers the principles and practice of treatment in anorexia nervosa and related eating disorders. The medical and nutritional therapies are well covered. The psychological therapies are less comprehensive. The tables are detailed, yet are not overly inclusive. The treatment algorithms in the figures are clinically applicable. A unique feature is the section with the color photographs of physical manifestations of eating disorders. Also, the bibliography contains journal articles on medical management of eating disorders. The book is user-friendly. Because the authors are or have been professors of psychiatry, a shortcoming of the book is that the psychiatric and psychological section is not more of a focus.
Assessment: This is a great handbook for those involved in the medical management of eating disorders. As a psychiatry resident, I will find this book very useful as a reference.
