Medical findings in 1,026 consecutive adult inpatient –residential eating disordered patients
We report contemporary medical data, for newly admitted adult inpatient and residential level of care patients. MethodMedical records of a transdiagnostic sample of 1,026 patients, with eating disorders, were retrospectively reviewed for the presence of a broad array of medical complications at time of admission. The prevalence of physiologically relevant medical complications was assessed across major eating disorder categories. ResultsOf the patients, 93.6% were female, and they had an average age of 28.1 (SD = 10.1, range 17–69). The average admission body mass index was 16.1 (SD = 2.3)...

Feasibility of a parent education and skills workshop for improving response to family ‐based treatment of adolescent anorexia nervosa
Abstract ObjectiveEarly response to family‐based treatment (FBT) is a robust predictor of positive outcomes for adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN). We introduced a parent education and skills workshop in the first 4 weeks of treatment with the aim of improving changes in parent self‐efficacy in FBT and, in turn, patient weight gain. MethodForty‐five families who had at least one parent attend the workshop were compared to a matched control of families who did FBT before the workshop was introduced. ResultsAmong adolescents who were underweight at baseline, weight gain by Week 4 of treatment was higher for adolesc...

Network analysis: An innovative framework for understanding eating disorder psychopathology
Abstract Network theory and analysis is an emerging approach in psychopathology research that has received increasing attention across fields of study. In contrast to medical models or latent variable approaches, network theory suggests that psychiatric syndromes result from systems of causal and reciprocal symptom relationships. Despite the promise of this approach to elucidate key mechanisms contributing to the development and maintenance of eating disorders (EDs), thus far, few applications of network analysis have been tested in ED samples. We first present an overview of network theory, review the existing findings in...

On the measurement of thin ‐ideal internalization: Implications for interpretation of risk factors and treatment outcome in eating disorders research
DiscussionResults indicate that the two most commonly used measures of internalization capture both shared and unique constructs. While both measures appear to contribute to the assessment of a global internalization factor, the SATAQ‐4R may be better suited to assess personal acceptance of and desire to achieve a thin body, while the IBSS‐R may be better suited to assess an awareness or acknowledgement of broader sociocultural ideals (e.g., toned, shapely bodies). Continued psychometric investigation of the scales is recommended in order to ensure targeted assessment of the intended constructs. (Source: International ...

Cortical thickness patterns as state biomarker of anorexia nervosa
Abstract ObjectiveOnly few studies have investigated cortical thickness in anorexia nervosa (AN), and it is unclear whether patterns of altered cortical thickness can be identified as biomarkers for AN. MethodCortical thickness was measured in 19 adult women with restricting‐type AN, 24 individuals recovered from restricting‐type AN (REC‐AN) and 24 healthy controls. Those individuals with current or recovered from AN had previously shown altered regional cortical volumes across orbitofrontal cortex and insula. A linear relevance vector machine‐learning algorithm estimated patterns of regional thickness across 24 su...

Toward valid and reliable brain imaging results in eating disorders
Abstract Human brain imaging can help improve our understanding of mechanisms underlying brain function and how they drive behavior in health and disease. Such knowledge may eventually help us to devise better treatments for psychiatric disorders. However, the brain imaging literature in psychiatry and especially eating disorders has been inconsistent, and studies are often difficult to replicate. The extent or severity of extremes of eating and state of illness, which are often associated with differences in, for instance hormonal status, comorbidity, and medication use, commonly differ between studies and likely add to v...

The combined investigation of electrocortical processes and behavior contributes to an advanced understanding of behavioral and electrocortical processes underlying inhibitory control in BED. Inhibitory control and negative mood, probably amplified by emotion regulation deficits, should be addressed further in the investigation and treatment of BED.

Anorexia nervosa and uric acid beyond gout: An idea worth researching

In contrast, the relation between uric acid and AN may have evolutionary origin and may be reciprocal, where uric acid regulates some features and pathophysiological processes of AN, including weight and metabolism regulation, oxidative stress, immunity, mood, cognition, and (hyper)activity.

Findings provide further support for the clinical significance of PD.

Abstract ObjectivePatients with atypical anorexia nervosa (AN) have many features overlapping with AN in terms of genetic risk, age of onset, psychopathology and prognosis of outcome, although the weight loss may not be a core factor. While brain structural alterations have been reported in AN, there are currently no data regarding atypical AN patients.

Ehlers –Danlos syndrome in a young woman with anorexia nervosa and complex somatic symptoms
We present a case of comorbid anorexia nervosa and EDS in a 23‐year old woman with a multitude of somatic symptoms that were initially attributed to the eating disorder but that were likely caused by the underlying EDS. Various EDS symptoms, such as gastrointestinal complaints, smell and taste abnormalities, and altered somatosensory awareness may resemble or mask an underlying eating disorder, and vice versa. Because of the large clinical heterogeneity, correctly identifying symptoms of EDS presents a challenge for clinicians, who should be aware of this group of underdiagnosed and potentially serious syndromes.
