Physician Assistant Jonathan Clemens is back for a more in depth look into eating disorders. He talks about some of the root causes of eating disorders, what they actually look like in patients, diagnosis and treatment options, and more.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- At any given body size, men with eating disorders are “sicker” than women, partially becaues they are more resistant to treatment.
- It is hard for young people to accept their changing bodies, parents can share a simple truth: everyone feels that way sometimes.
- Trauma is a big part of eating disorders. A lot of times, the eating disorder is a symptom of a much deeper problem.
