Anorexia Treatment Heres a question how would you feel if you found out that your friend had just committed suicide How would you feel if you knew you could have stopped herhim from doing it years ago Thats what I call Anorexia Nervosa suicide In definition its the deliberate self-starvation with intense weight loss Patients have a persistent fear of gaining weight they refuse to eat their always on a diet always exercising the list goes on and on all the way to excessive bodyfacial hair because of inadequate protein in their diet Which comes to my last question why isnt this mental illness being taken more seriously I want to know why the treatment of these patients arent adequate nor effective the majority of the times how they are expected to pay for it even when forced into treatment and why our society isnt even trying to prevent it There are many types of treatment for people who suffer from anorexia nervosa palliative care active care without a cure hospitalization and psychiatric care group therapy to name a few Also many of the treatments are combined most common is a patient being hospitalized and then receiving therapy Unfortunately these treatments have shown that they arent very effective only 50 of the patients treated are released or stop receiving care are labeled cured meaning they are at a safe weight at least 85 of the normal weight for their height and age and without showing more than a few symptoms of their illness which includes depression fear of gaining weight cutting themselves the overwhelming urge to be in control of everything that surrounds them mood swingsetc So if a 54 women left a hospital weighing 107 lb And showing signs of depression along with mood swings and still not wanting to gain weight would you say she was cured I know I wouldnt but obviously this is good enough for everyone This must explain why
