Lecture Topic: Eating disorders are complex and dangerous medical conditions. While the driving forces behind the eating disorder are emotional and psychological in nature, the effects of the eating disorder can cause widespread and profound physical problems. The medical complications are the primary reason why Anorexia Nervosa has the highest death rate of any psychiatric illness. The mortality rate is equal to that of many cancers. In spite of the varied and complex physical problems, they often go undiagnosed or untreated. Clinicians, including non-medical providers, need to be aware of the manifestations of these problems and how to detect them in those they treat.
