  • Slide 11 - Eating Disorders: Etiology Thought of as a biopsychosocial disorder. Vulnerabilities in three spheres: Individual/personal Family Socio- environmental 11
  • Slide 12 - Etiology Family Family/School GENETIC Society 12
  • Slide 13 - Etiology Longitudinal studies looking at eating behaviors in early childhood. History of food refusal in early childhood. Higher incidence of eating problems in later childhood “Early childhood feeding problems” Higher incidence of disordered eating 8 -10 year later ? Sets the stage for later problems Weight and body image concerns develop prior to puberty Puberty is critical period for development of disordered eating in girls -precipitant? 13
  • Slide 14 - Role of PANDAS Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcus Clinical criteria Presence of OCD or tic disorder Pediatric onset – (3 yrs. – puberty) Episodic course of symptoms Association with streptococcal infection Associated with hyperactivity, choreiform movements Described in 1998 by Saved, Leonard, Garvey *Svedo, SE. American J of Psychiatry 155:264-271, 1998. 14
  • Slide 15 - Assessment in the Primary Care Setting 15
  • Slide 16 - When should you suspect an eating disorder? Unexplained weight loss Any weight loss or failure to gain expected weight in a child is concerning! Change in eating patterns Progressive change from high caloric density foods to lower caloric; vegetarianism/veganism, desire to “eat healthier”; frank restriction Change in eating behaviors, focus on food, rituals Change in activity patterns, exercise Lack of concern by teen/child about emaciation 16
  • Slide 17 - Atypical Presentation in Children and Adolescents More often males Appears in context of stressful family or life events More likely to have co-morbid psychiatric diagnoses Anxiety, OCD, depression Less likely to have body image disturbances They agree that they are thin Weight loss is unexpected: "eating healthy” Leads to confusion about why parents are concerned 17
  • Slide 18 - Atypical Presentation in Children and Adolescents Can often lead to delay in diagnosis Seen as a “passing phase” May not have lost amount of weight to meet strict criteria Any weight loss should be concerning given normal expectations for weight gain and growth Interruption of normal pubertal processes may lead to irreversible stunting Changes in brain volumes (MRI); bone accretion 18
  • Slide 19 - 19
  • Slide 20 - Eating Disorders:Presenting symptoms Physical symptoms reflect degree of malnutrition Weight Loss or inability to maintain normal weight Amenorrhea - virtually 100% Constipation Abdominal pain Fatigue Cold intolerance Light-headedness Signs of cognitive blunting 20
  • Slide 21 - Eating disorders: Presenting Physical Signs Cachexia, muscle wasting Hypotension, hypothermia, bradycardia Acrocyanosis Dry skin, or lanugo-type hair Edema Systolic murmur Short stature Breast atrophy Lack of signs indicating other causes to wt. loss Enamel loss and salivary gland enlargement with frequent purging 21
  • Slide 22 - Eating Disorders: Diagnosis Comprehensive history and PE will guide w/u Limit laboratory studies on basis of Histoy and PE Consider differential diagnoses: Medical Conditions Psychiatric Utilize DMS-IV Criteria when appropriate Consider alternate classifications 22
  • Slide 23 - Differential Diagnoses Medical Conditions GI - Inflammatory bowel disease, malabsorption Endocrine DM, Addison’s, thyroid disease Malignancies CNS lesions tumors, intracranial infections, increased ICP, Miscellaneous - early pregnancy, sarcoidosis, cystic fibrosis Chronic infections (TB, HIV) Psychiatric Disorders Mood disorders, OCD, Body dysmorphic disorder, Substance use disorders, Psychosis 23
  • Slide 24 - DSM-IV Criteria in Children? To what extent does current system capture the developmental aspects and atypical presentations seen in children and adolescents? Too restrictive Is diagnosis of EDNOS useful and does it reflect a partial syndrome that may progress to full-blown AN/BN later? Subthreshold versus truly atypical Are there other entities that should be included in classification system for children? 24
  • Slide 25 - Anorexia Nervosa – DSM-IV Refusal to maintain weight within a normal range for ht and age - >85%IBW Fear of gaining weight Severe body image disturbance Image is main measure of self-worth, denial of seriousness of illness Amenorrhea (greater than three cycles Two subtypes – restrictive and binge-eating/purging 25
  • Slide 26 - Anorexia Nervosa: Cardinal Features Self-induced weight loss Psychological disturbance Distorted body image Fear of obesity Secondary physiological abnormalities Result of malnutrition 26

  • Slide 30 - Eating Disorders:Diagnosis and Assessment Laboratory Assessment CBC and platelets, ESR, BUN, CR, electrolytes, LFTs, Ca, phosphate, Mg, albumin, T4, TSH, ECG Consider bone mineral density if amenorrheic for > 1 year Nutritional Assessment - 24 hour recall, %IBW – utilize BMI 50%ile for age (~BMI <16) Recent losses or gains Can determine degree of malnutrition 30
  • Slide 31 - Eating Disorders: Complications Cardiac impairment MVP, QT prolongation, CHF Osteoporosis Gastrointestinal Some specific to purging, slowed motility, nausea/bloating Endocrine/Metabolic Neurological – cognitive Dental 31
  • Slide 32 - Management Requires a multidisciplinary team approach Medical - manage medical concerns, monitor wt., coordinate team Nutritional - education, nutrition/dietary plans and options, caloric requirements Mental health – individual and family needs, focus on affective issues, medication management School personnel – assist with reintegrating into more normal functioning 32
  • Slide 33 - Mental Health Treatment Individual therapy Cognitive behavioral therapy has best outcomes Limited data on efficacy Tries to teach relation between thoughts and feelings and behavior; recognize how related to disordered eating Key role of family therapy, particularly younger teens most effective Explicit family involvement in day-to-day treatment No evidence for adding psychotropics in absence of co-morbid mental health conditions 33
  • Slide 34 - When to Admit?Indications for Hospitalization Hypovolemia/ hypotension Severe malnutrition - <75% IBW Cardiac dysfunction, arrhythmias, prolonged QT interval Bradycardia <45 beats/minute Electrolyte disturbance – hypokalemia, hypoglycemia Rapid weight loss despite interventions Intractable binge-purge episodes Suicidal thoughts or gestures Highly dysfunctional or abusive family Failure of outpatient therapy 34

  • Slide 37 - Advice for Families Have patience with the process of treatment/recovery Prepare for a marathon, not a 50 yd. dash Avoid blaming Avoid power struggles over food Avoid comments about weight and appearance Avoid unreasonable preparations to purchase or prepare special foods Get support – individual or couples therapy, support groups Get rid of the scale! Pay attention to siblings 37

  • Slide 40 - In-patient Medical Monitoring Medical/Fluid status Initial labs Electrolytes prn, q week when stable For refeeding - divalents q day for initial 3 days Urine S.G.s – initially and q AM Orthostatic VSs – baseline; then prn Pulse for full 60 seconds; 2 minutes between lying and standing P and BP. Cardiac monitoring Strict bed rest vs. on basis of wt. and lab values 40
  • Slide 41 - Protocol-Based Management Weight expectations Baseline weight Close input with nutritionist Determine exchanges, kcals, refeeding kcals, Help determine types of foods to be eaten (no diet/lite), no outside food Strict adherence to weighing procedure Gown, following full void, back to scale, weight not provided to patient Range of weight expected: 2 kgs/week .2-.3 kgs or .4-.5 lbs/week ***Strategies if weight goal not met: Plateauing of privileges; adding supplements 2 first day/ 3 second day/ 4 third day 41
