Promising treatments for anorexia and bulimia RESEARCH BOOSTS SUPPORT FOR TOUGH-TO-TREAT EATING DISORDERS. BY TORI DeANGELIS After years of investigation, researchers are finally homing in on ways to help young women overcome two dangerous psychiatric disorders: anorexia nervosa, the rare disease of self-starvation, and bulimia nervosa, the condition marked by binge-eating, purging to avoid weight gain, low self-esteem and depression. While mental health professionals have tried to understand and treat anorexia nervosa since the 1970s, their efforts have met with little success. The mainstay of treatment has been hospitalization for weight regain, sometimes followed by psychotherapy, and it's often ineffective at helping patients recover physically and psychologically over the long term, those studying the disorder say. But new research reveals there may be a more effective treatment for anorexia: a form of family therapy that enlists parents' aid in getting their teen-age daughters to eat again and helps to strengthen the young women's autonomy. The treatment, which originated in England, challenges current anorexia treatment because it's relatively short-term, relies mostly on outpatient treatment and boasts lasting success, those involved say. "Overall, patients appear to do remarkably well on this treatment," says James Lock, MD, PhD, a child psychiatrist at Stanford University who's testing the treatment in the United States on a five-year National Institute on Mental Health (NIMH) grant. "I'm amazed at its ability to help patients overcome the acute symptoms of anorexia nervosa."

Bulimia Nervosa
Index Previous Page Next page Bulimia nervosa is characterized by recurrent and frequent episodes of eating unusually large amounts of food (e.g., binge-eating), and feeling a lack of control over the eating. This binge-eating is followed by a type of behavior that compensates for the binge, such as purging (e.g., vomiting, excessive use of laxatives or diuretics), fasting and/or excessive exercise. Unlike anorexia, people with bulimia can fall within the normal range for their age and weight. But like people with anorexia, they often fear gaining weight, want desperately to lose weight, and are intensely unhappy with their body size and shape. Usually, bulimic behavior is done secretly, because it is often accompanied by feelings of disgust or shame. The binging and purging cycle usually repeats several times a week. Similar to anorexia, people with bulimia often have coexisting psychological illnesses, such as depression, anxiety and/or substance abuse problems. Many physical conditions result from the purging aspect of the illness, including electrolyte imbalances, gastrointestinal problems, and oral and tooth-related problems. Other symptoms include:
  • chronically inflamed and sore throat swollen glands in the neck and below the jaw worn tooth enamel and increasingly sensitive and decaying teeth as a result of exposure to stomach acids

The lost lesson of Terri Schiavo
By GARY D. FOX Published October 26, 2003 In November 1992, a jury in Clearwater returned a verdict in favor of Terri and Michael Schiavo for more than $6.8-million. The jury found that Terri had been the victim of substandard medical care that caused, in part, her coma. The jury also found that Terri was partly at fault and the verdict was reduced accordingly, to about $2-million. I was the lead trial lawyer for Terri and Michael. I have followed from afar the saga of the Schiavo family since the trial. The battles over whether to disconnect Terri's life support have been extensively covered in the media. What has not been widely reported is the cause of Terri's coma. By all accounts, Terri was a fine young woman. She had a good job, a good marriage and many friends. Most who knew Terri, however, were unaware that she was sick. Terri suffered from an eating disorder known as bulimia nervosa, commonly called bulimia. The disease causes its victims to overeat ("binge") and soon thereafter vomit ("purge"). The cycle of binging and purging is extremely dangerous. The human heart, to work properly, requires a balance of the body's electrolytes. Vomiting can upset the electrolyte balance and cause abnormal heart rhythms that can lead to heart attack. That is what happened to Terri. One night, Terri purged, which caused her potassium level to drop low enough to cause a heart attack. Before fire rescue arrived and took her to the hospital, Terri's brain had been deprived of oxygen for long enough to produce catastrophic brain damage.

    Definition Bulimia is characterized by a cycle of binge eating followed by purging to try and rid the body of unwanted calories. A binge is different for all individuals. For one person a binge may range from 1000 to 10000 calories, for another, one cookie may be considered a binge. Purging methods usually involve vomiting and laxative abuse. Other forms of purging can involve excessive exercise, fasting, use of diuretics, diet pills and enemas. Bulimics are usually people that do not feel secure about their own self worth. They usually strive for the approval of others. They tend to do whatever they can to please others, while hiding their own feelings. Food becomes their only source of comfort. Bulimia also serves as a function for blocking or letting out feelings. Unlike anorexics, bulimics do realize they have a problem and are more likely to seek help. Signs and Symptoms

    Control Bulimia
    Bulimia is more than just occasionally eating more than you should. Most people have a binge now and then. When bulimia takes hold it feels like it controls your whole life.
    The cycle of bulimia
    There is a bulimic cycle which starts with a feeling of stress or a build up of tension. Next there may be a period of planning (even if that's just for a few minutes) during which time you decide when, where and on what you'll binge.
    Bulimia is hypnotic
    At the onset of a bulimic episode there is a trance out feeling where everything else seems to fade into the background as you forget time passing or outside thoughts and ideas and just pile into the particular food you are binging on.
    Eventually, of course the particular binge episode will finish. This either happens because you feel fit to burst and just can't put any more in almost as if you're stomach will split.
    Next in the bulimic cycle comes the purging. Whether it's making yourself vomit or taking laxatives or both. This is like 'having your cake and eating it!' Or 'Having your fill but keeping slim'.

    Bulimia nervosa
    Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating and engaging in inappropriate ways of counteracting the bingeing (using laxatives, for example) in order to prevent weight gain. The word "bulimia" is the Latin form of the Greek word boulimia , which means "extreme hunger." A binge is consuming a larger amount of food within a limited period of time than most people would eat in similar circumstances. Most people with bulimia report feelings of loss of control associated with bingeing, and some have mildly dissociative experiences in the course of a binge, which means that they feel disconnected from themselves and from reality when they binge. The handbook for mental health professionals to aid in diagnosis is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders , also known as the DSM-IV-TR. This book categorizes bulimia nervosa as an eating disorder, along with anorexia nervosa
    Bulimia nervosa is classified into two subtypes according to the methods used by the patient to prevent weight gain after a binge. The purging subtype of bulimia is characterized by the use of self-induced vomiting, laxatives, enemas, or diuretics (pills that induce urination); in the nonpurging subtype, fasting or overexercising is used to compensate for binge eating.

As in anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa is influenced by hereditary and social factors. Also as in anorexia nervosa, most people who have bulimia nervosa are young women, are deeply concerned about body shape and weight, and belong to the middle or upper socioeconomic classes. About 2% of college women, the population believed to be at highest risk, are bulimics. Symptoms People with bulimia nervosa engage in repeated episodes of bingeing, which involves consuming large amounts of food within a relatively short period of time, often within 2 hours. Emotional stress often triggers the binge-purge cycle, which usually is done in secret. Bingeing, which is accompanied by a feeling of a loss of control, typically includes eating when not hungry and eating to the point of pain. In an attempt to counteract the effects of the binge, people with bulimia nervosa engage in purging through such means as vomiting or taking laxatives; rigorously dieting; overexercising; or any combination of these. Many also take diuretics to treat perceived bloating. Unlike in anorexia nervosa, however, the body weight of people with bulimia nervosa tends to fluctuate around normal.

    Bulimia Nervosa Treatment
    Bulimia Nervosa is a disorder where the main characteristics are binge eating and compensatory behaviors in order to prevent weight gain. Bulimics are caught in the devastating and addictive binge-purge cycle. For individuals suffering from Bulimia Nervosa, the binge can be seen as a reward within itself and a way to cope with daily stresses and feelings. Bulimic binges usually consist of a larger than normal quantity of food, that typically are high in caloric intake. For individuals with Bulimia Nervosa, the binge eating usually occurs in secrecy and rarely in the presence of others. The types of food vary but are often sweet and/or high in fat content. Some binges are planned in advance by the Bulimic, but generally they are impulsive. Triggers for binges in Bulimia Nervosa include dysphoric mood, interpersonal stressors, boredom, prolonged dieting , and body image dissatisfaction.

    Assessment and Treatment of Bulimia Nervosa
    B ulimia nervosa is a psychiatric syndrome with potentially serious consequences. Relatively effective treatments for this disorder have been developed, and early intervention is more likely to facilitate eventual recovery. Unfortunately, few health care professionals receive training in the assessment of bulimia nervosa. Therefore, they may be unable to identify and treat patients with the disorder. Historically, patients with bulimia nervosa often were hospitalized until the most disruptive symptoms ceased. In today's health care environment, hospitalization for bulimia nervosa is infrequent and tends to take the form of brief admissions focused on crisis management. Specialists in the field of eating disorders have responded to the present cost-containment measures by developing a combination of treatment modalities, including medication and individual and group psychotherapy, that can be used in the outpatient care of patients with bulimia nervosa. This article discusses the assessment and treatment of bulimia nervosa and considers how this disorder can best be handled in a managed care environment. Definitions and Etiology Bulimia can occur with binge eating and purging, or with nonpurging behaviors such as fasting or excessive exercise.

    Chemical malfunction plays role in bulimia, researchers say
    February 14, 1999
    Web posted at: 9:49 p.m. EST (0249 GMT) CHICAGO (AP) A new study adds to evidence that the eating disorder bulimia springs at least in part from a chemical malfunction in the brain and not merely from excessive desire to remain thin, researchers say. In the study released Sunday, women who had suffered from bulimia and recovered were more affected psychologically than other women by being deprived of tryptophan, which plays an indirect role in appetite regulation, researchers found. Tryptophan is an amino acid that occurs naturally in many foods and is used by the body to make serotonin, a mood- and appetite-regulating chemical in the brain. Compared with normal women, the recovered bulimics reported bigger dips in mood, greater worries about body image and more fear of losing control of eating after being deprived of dietary tryptophan for about 17 hours, researchers said.
