Anorexia nervosa: role of the primary care physician
Musante D, Attia E

Educational Needs Addressed Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious psychiatric disorder distinguished by a refusal to maintain a minimally normal body weight, intense fear of weight gain, and disturbances in the perception of body shape and weight. While physical examination may only reveal emaciation and laboratory tests may not demonstrate abnormalities, AN has severe physical side effects and may be associated with disturbances in multiple organ systems. Patients with AN often deny the severity of their illness and may be unmotivated to pursue treatment. Skilled primary care physicians can thus play a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with AN. Educational Objectives: After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the clinical features of AN 2.Describe the medical complications of AN 3. Discuss the therapeutic approaches that have been studied for treatment of AN 4.Describe components of behaviorally oriented treatment for AN
