Eating Disorder – Diagnosis



A diagnosis of an eating disorder will be made using an assessment of symptoms. Physical examination, which will include the measurement of a body mass index. And the goal of treatment is to help understand the processes behind an eating disorder and ultimately the restoration of a healthy weight. It’s important to mention that there is significant mortality rate of approximately 12 to 15% with anorexia, which is one of the highest across mental disorders, which can include death from the physical complications of the eating disorders, but also from suicide. Your doctor will make an assessment of your risk in this respect and ask you for experiencing thoughts or plans to harm yourself or to end your life, in order to best support you.
