Anorexia Nervosa Treatment in Seattle

Anorexia nervosa is a complex eating disorder characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat, along with a distorted body image. People with anorexia nervosa often have a strong desire to achieve and maintain a low body weight, which leads to severe dietary restrictions, excessive exercise, and other behaviors aimed at controlling weight and shape.

Anorexia nervosa is characterized by:

  • Significant restriction of food intake.
  • Intense fear of weight gain or becoming fat.
  • Distorted perception of your weight or body image.
  • Self-worth tied to body size.
  • Body weight is considered to be “underweight.”

If not treated, anorexia nervosa can lead to serious complications. These include malnutrition, weakened immune function, electrolyte imbalances, heart problems, bone loss and osteoporosis, gastrointestinal issues, hormonal imbalances, reproductive health problems, mental health issues like depression and anxiety, and social and interpersonal difficulties. 

Early intervention and comprehensive treatment are crucial to prevent and address these potentially severe consequences.
