Medical Eating Disorder Therapy in Miami

Studies show that anorexia nervosa is the most lethal mental disorder — resulting in a mortality rate for those with the condition that is 6 times higher than that of their peers. This startling fact makes early intervention essential for long-term eating disorder recovery. Taking the time to understand some potential medical risks related to common eating disorders can be very helpful for parents and loved ones. It may be time to consider residential eating disorder treatment if you notice any of the flowing symptoms:

Common Physical Symptoms of Eating Disorders

Anytime someone experiences drastic fluctuations in their overall body weight and size; there is cause for concern. These fluctuations may also be accompanied by other physical changes such as dry skin and hair, tooth decay and cavities, muscle weakness, bloating and more.

Severe dehydration is also prevalent in cases of anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. Dehydration is linked to electrolyte imbalances that can negatively affect every major organ system in the body. People with electrolyte imbalances have an increased risk of experiencing irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, and heart failure.

Women with eating disorders may experience infrequent periods or the absence of menstrual periods altogether. Normally after treatment, this will self-correct.

Common Behavioral Symptoms of Eating Disorders

Obsessive thoughts surrounding food, body weight, body shape, dieting, calories, exercise and counting fat grams are also common. In fact, people with eating disorders often attempt to achieve an “ideal” body shape using fad diets. Extreme exercise routines are also typical leading individuals to exercise no matter their current health, social commitments or inclement weather.

The development of specific food rituals is another good indication that someone is experiencing eating disorder behaviors. Loved ones may notice that their loved one chooses to eat their foods in a specific order, refuses to eat a meal if the foods on their plate touch, excessive chewing, or cutting out specific food groups altogether.

As their condition progresses, many people may develop feelings of anxiety or depression that prevent them from enjoying social activities. They may begin to isolate themselves and express concerns about eating around others, eating their meals alone and hiding or hoarding food away
