Anorexia nervosa: case study 2
Ellie is a 43-year-old lady who lives with her husband (who has T1DM) and works in a management position. She has a history of AN dating from her early 20s and has attended several day programs over the years although never allowed her weight to reach its natural level. Ellie has comorbidities of anxiety and more recently an autoimmune disease, and also has IBS. These have all played a part in maintaining her eating disorder, and Maureen will highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary team approach for her treatment. Ellie was recently admitted to an inpatient unit for nutritional rehabilitation and is gradually working towards recovery.
