The Medical Complications of Anorexia Nervosa

  • C. W. Sharp (a1) and C. P. L. Freeman (a2)

Abstract

The physical complications of anorexia nervosa are common and can be life threatening, but psychiatrists and the increasing number of non-medical therapists involved in treatment programmes often overlook these complications. Cardiovascular complications are the most common, and the most likely to result in fatalities, particularly in those patients who vomit, purge or abuse diuretics, because of the electrolyte abnormalities induced. Osteoporosis is an early and perhaps irreversible consequence of severe weight loss. Further, there are dangers in rapid intravenous hyperalimentation.
