Anorexia Nervosa Inpatient Treatment Centers in Miami, FL

Eating disorders like anorexia nervosa lead all other known mental health disorders in suicide attempts and mortality rates. Anorexia nervosa is characterized by dramatic weight loss or the lack of weight gain in adolescents. Individuals with anorexia nervosa have difficulties maintaining a weight that is deemed medically appropriate for their age, height and stature. They typically experience a distorted body image, anxiety and depression. Because they fail to see that they are underweight, individuals will begin to restrict the number of calories they consume daily.

For individuals interested in medical treatment for anorexia in Miami, Oliver-Pyatt Centers offer the highest level of medical and psychiatric care outside of a hospital setting. Our comprehensive anorexia nervosa inpatient treatment programs will help you find the tools you need to begin the recovery process in a safe and comfortable environment.

Navigating an Anorexia Nervosa Diagnosis in Miami

Receiving an anorexia nervosa diagnosis in Miami can make even the most reliable family unit question their next steps. Before you and your loved ones begin looking for an anorexia nervosa outpatient treatment center, it’s essential that you work to understand better the potential long-term side effects associated with the condition.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa

People with this type of eating disorder are preoccupied with their body weight, body shape, exercise, dieting, counting calories, and fat grams. One of the first warning signs loved ones may notice is the fact that individuals with anorexia nervosa tend to dress in layers to hide their changing body shape and keep warm.

Their obsession with food may also cause them to begin using strange food “rituals.” Family and friends may notice that these individuals choose to eat only specific types of food for every meal, start chewing food excessively or eat their food in a particular order.

To appear as if they are maintaining their previous appetite, those with anorexia nervosa may cook meals for others but avoid eating themselves. They often make excuses for skipping meals. Over time, they will skip social situations that involve food, resulting in feelings of depression and increased isolation.

Potential Long-Term Side Effects

The long-term practice of restricting calories and constant dieting can lead to severe dehydration. If left untreated, dehydration can result in electrolyte imbalances that affect every major organ system in the body. In particular, the heart is the most vulnerable to electrolyte imbalances, increasing the risk of irregular heartbeat and heart failure.

Malnutrition and other development problems are common for people who develop the condition in adolescence. For growing children and young adults, anorexia nervosa can result in chronic health complications including osteoporosis — a debilitating bone condition that can lead to frequent fractures and breaks.

• Women with anorexia nervosa may have infrequent menstrual periods as their condition develops. Recovery can help to regulate the body once again, but this process can take months or years to complete.
