About the Presentation:

Eating disorders in adolescents can be devastating with significant medical morbidity including multi-organ system involvement along with potential growth and development abnormalities.  Recognition of these potential medical complications is imperative at an early stage.  The physiologic reserve of adolescents is more limited so clinical decision-making needs to be concise and timely for prompt medical stabilization.  This discussion will involve a review of the impact of eating disorders on the medical status of adolescents including a thorough review of the various systems impact as well as appropriate assessment and treatment.  Emphasis will be placed on integration of the medical care within the context of the larger team regarding intervention and communication to accomplish a comprehensive approach to the disorder.  Contemporary issues of comorbid food allergies, gluten sensitivity, diabetes, IBS, etc, will be discussed and a practical approach to diagnosis and treatment will be presented.  There will be an interactive time of questions and answers.
