Abstract and Keywords
Eating disorders (EDs) in adolescents are serious illnesses that affect many aspects of their lives. The medical assessment includes a thorough history, physical exam, and targeted laboratory testing. EDs can cause serious medical complications in every organ system. Clinicians should be aware of medical conditions that may cause similar presenting symptoms and also be able to identify any medical complications that develop as consequence of the ED. Acute and long-term medical complications have been identified in adolescents with EDs. Medical management focuses on nutritional rehabilitation, weight restoration, and the prevention or reversal of medical complications. Treatment may occur in a variety of settings, but should be delivered by an interdisciplinary, experienced team and include the adolescent’s family.
