    DescriptionEating disorders are known to affect between 1 and 4% of all women, and a smaller proportion of men. This text is designed to provide all health professionals with the practical information they need to treat patients with anorexia nervosa and related eating disorders. A user-friendly structure allows the reader to access information on the basis of physical complaint. The book is divided into five sections, each consisting of a case, discussion of the topic and a summary of key points. For the second edition, sections have been added on Munchausen's syndrome, the medical risk of death, ruminating, Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome, shoplifting, substance use, and patient self-help. The text is supplemented with diagnostic color photographs of important physical manifestations of eating disorders. The text is suitable for all health care professionals involved in eating disorder management, with special information provided for general practitioners, nursing staff, family carers and nutritionists.

    Review quote
    Reviews of the first edition: 'The strength of this book is that it combines expertise of medicine and psychiatry to produce a practical guide to the medical complications and management of AN and related disorders. This book can serve as a reference textbook and partly as a manual for consultation. All in all, the authors have succeeded in producing a highly practical and comprehensive guide to the medical complications and management of AN and related disorders.' Hong Kong Medical Journal 'A major strength is the quality and breadth of the information provided ... scores highly on user-friendliness ... clearly written with the reader in mind ... valuable reading to all staff new to the field of eating disorders, to the medical and nursing staff of my in-patient eating disorder unit, to interested general practitioners and practice nurses, to paediatric services, to dieticians, to keen medical students and to some patients and parents.' Psychological Medicine 'This is very much a book for a range of professionals who need an accessible and ready source of information regarding the medical complications of the eating disorders, at their fingertips. It is also a useful introductory text ... I found this book accessible and easy to use for answering quick medical queries or concerns (as I had hoped!). The use of case examples was valuable in bringing clinical material to life. ... This book has achieved its author's goals of being both a reference textbook and a manual for consultation.' European Eating Disorders Review
