Long ‐term outcome of anorexia nervosa: Results from a large clinical longitudinal study

DiscussionMany patients with very severe AN recover from their illness but AN also shows considerable long‐term negative consequences. Over long time periods, survivors show improvement but better treatments for severe cases are still needed. Predictors of outcome included symptom severity, chronicity, and length of follow‐up but not psychiatric comorbidity.

ConclusionsWhilst full spectrum eating disorders, including ARFID, were less common than OSFED or UFED, they were associated with poor mental HRQoL and significant functional impairment. The present study supports the movement of eating disorders in to broader socio demographic groups including men, socio-economic disadvantaged groups and those with obesity.

Approximately 30 million individuals have experienced a diagnosable eating disorder at some point in their life. People with an eating disorder are more likely to have comorbid physical and psychological conditions, higher annual health care costs, and experience reduced quality of life. Moreover, eating disorders are among the deadliest of psychological conditions, with anorexia nervosa in particular having an especially high mortality rate. While the burden is significant, there has long been a lack of access to eating disorder prevention, identification, and intervention services. Parity of behavioral health care with g...

Authors: Malczyk Ż, Oświęcimska JM Abstract Anorexia nervosa (AN) is the third most common disorder, after obesity and asthma, in the population of adolescents between 13-18 years of age. Food intake reduction is associated with whole body dysfunction, affecting its physical, psychological and social spheres. As a result of starvation, dysfunction develops in virtually all systems and organs. However, most frequently patients with AN complain of digestive symptoms, such as a feeling of fullness after meals, pain in the upper abdomen, dysphagia, nausea, bloating and constipation. They can have mild functional cha...

Researchers have uncovered the first genetic variant tied to anorexia nervosa, reports astudy published today inAJP in Advance. This large-scale genomic effort also identified many correlations between anorexia and other psychiatric and metabolic disorders, providing a new way to conceptualize this serious and potentially lethal eating disorder.Past studies of anorexia in twins suggested that the disorder is heritable, but previous genome-wide association studies (GWASs) to uncover risk variants have been limited by small sample sizes.For the current study, Cynthia Bulik, Ph.D., of the University of North Carolina School o...

The gut harbors an enormous diversity of microbes that are essential for the maintenance of homeostasis in health and disease. A growing body of evidence supports the role of this microbiota in influencing host appetite and food intake. Individual species within the gut microbiota are under selective pressure arising from nutrients available and other bacterial species present. Each bacterial species within the gut aims to increase its own fitness, habitat, and survival via specific fermentation of dietary nutrients and secretion of metabolites, many of which can influence host appetite and eating behavior by directly affe...
