Now in its third edition, Medical Management of Eating Disorders is the definitive text on the diagnosis and general management of patients with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and other related eating disorders.

Providing up-to-date information and research on world-class treatments, this book helps health care professionals understand how to treat eating disorders and other subsequent medical complications that arise as a result of the patient's disorder. Each chapter begins with 'Study Questions' to focus the reader and put the relevant information into perspective, and concludes with 'Implications for Health Care Professionals' to summarise the key learnings of the chapter. 'Patient Information' sections are also included to give examples of how the topics covered can be presented to patients and families. This text is essential reading for all health care professionals involved in the care and management of patients with eating disorders.

Key Features:

  • Includes coverage of all the medical complications of eating disorders from the most common to the rarest
  • Provides treatment options that are cutting edge, not just what is considered affordable and practical by political entities and budget limitations
  • Each chapter concludes with a 'Patient Information' section to help the health care professional learn how to convey information to patients and carers
