Eating Disorders in Adults - 5 Ways They Can Be Treated!

Eating Disorders in Adults - 5 Ways They Can Be Treated!

While eating is one of the most important methods to survive, as it the fuel for the body, there are people who have issues related to eating. While some tend to avoid food, others tend to overeat and some tend to binge on certain types of foods. The two extremes of avoiding food and overeating, known as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa respectively are the most common types of eating disorders. In both cases, it is not just about food.

In each of the individual with eating disorder, there is always an underlying psychological problem, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. As the eating disorder is just one of the manifestations, the underlying problem needs to be addressed for the eating disorder to completely disappear. Else, there are chances that it may resurface again in a while. Treating an eating disorder requires various approaches in addition to just managing the eating pattern. Read on to know the most common five methods.

  1. Nutritional counselling: In people with eating disorders, the person begins to believe that he/she is eating a healthy diet. The counselor tries to break this belief and instil healthy eating habits. This helps in completely recovery and is essential for long-term success of treating the disorder. In some severe cases, even the family members may be involved in this counselling.
  2. Psychotherapy: This again helps the affected individual understand the reason behind the altered eating patterns. Exploring the causes and understanding the disorder helps prevent relapse after initial treatment. Additionally, strained relationships, anxiety, depression, and stress management are also addressed through psychotherapy. Success of treating an eating disorder often lies in managing the coexisting mental conditions.
  3. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: This is one of the main modalities of treating an eating disorder and it is a very structured program. It might sometimes involve the close family members also and addresses unhealthy thought patterns that lead to the disorder. The person becomes aware of why he/she is eating abnormally and tries to make a conscious change to it.
  4. Co-Medical conditions: In patients with anorexia, the consciously reduced food intake can have severe effects on the other body organs including anaemia, low blood pressure, fatigue, vital organ failure, and overall low energy levels. A thorough evaluation and treatment to manage these conditions is essential before putting the person on a course correction of the eating disorder.
  5. Medications: Medications are essential to not treat the eating disorder per se, but to manage the other conditions. Whether it is medical conditions like anaemia and low blood pressure, or psychological conditions like anxiety or depression, medications are used to manage these.

In more severe cases, the person may be required to undergo a residential program to overcome the abnormal eating tendencies.

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. Don't panic. Missed or late periods happen for many reasons other than pregnancy. Common causes can range from hormonal imbalances to serious medical conditions. There are also two times in a woman's life when it's totally normal for her period to be irregular: when it first begins, and when menopause starts. Consult or Talk to your gynecologist. Take care.

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Female egg and male sperm cells should be healthy enough. Then female uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these are satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Talk to a gynecologist for advice. Take care.

PCOS - How To Get Pregnant With It?

PCOS - How To Get Pregnant With It?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder of the endocrine system in women. It has been found that women suffering from PCOS have enlarged ovaries. These bigger ovaries contain fluids called follicles. During an ultrasound examination, these follicles are seen. If you are suffering from irregular or prolonged menstrual periods, acne, obesity and uncontrolled hair growth, you can get yourself tested for PCOS. However, doctors have failed to determine the exact cause of PCOS. This condition can have dangerous consequences and affect the overall health of the patient. If left untreated, it can cause type 2 diabetes or heart diseases. 

What happens in PCOS? 
Women suffering from this disorder experience a hormonal imbalance in their body. The hormone changes triggers multiple issues in the body. Sometimes, body produces excess of sex hormone. Women may develop masculine features due to over-production of male hormones or androgens. There might be imbalance in insulin levels, increasing the risk of developing diabetes

What causes PCOS? 
Surprisingly, the exact cause of PCOS is not known. Researchers have not been able to pinpoint the exact cause for developing PCOS. However, some believe that the cause has hereditary links. 

Symptoms of PCOS 
The symptoms of PCOS are usually mild in nature during the initial stage. In the beginning, only few symptoms are detectable. These include acne, obesity, extra hair growth on face, thinning of hair on the scalp and irregular periods. The symptoms often get unnoticed by the patient first or they relate those of the pregnancy

Conceiving with PCOS 
In case, you have been detected with PCOS and it is the reason behind your infertility, you must not get dishearten. You have a possibility to induce ovulation. One can opt for fertility medications. These drugs have shown success in ovulation and pregnancy.

Some of these are as follows: 
1. Metformin. It helps to regulate the amount of insulin in the blood. It also helps to resolve fertility issues. 
2. Clomiphene citrate. It stimulates ovulation
3. Gonadotropins. These are known to be hormone shots, which cause ovulation. 
4. Letrozole. This drug is known to block estrogen production. Instead, it increases production of follicle-stimulating hormone. 
5. Ovarian drilling. If fertility medications fail, doctor may try doing a surgery known as “ovarian drilling.” In this method, a surgeon inserts a needle through the abdomen of the patient to destroy a smaller portion of the ovaries. This lowers the androgens produced by the ovary.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
