Edited by J. Morris. © 2008 Blackwell Publishing, ISBN: 978-0-7279-1843-7. 1 Case vignette: Jeannie Jeannie, a student teacher in her mid-20s, had disclosed details of her bulimia to her family general practitioner, Dr Brown, and was working through a self-help manual with the support and encouragement of the practice nurse. The receptionist asked Dr Brown if he would kindly ‘pop through between patients’ as Jeannie had become very distressed in the nurse’s office. Weekly weighing had revealed a 2 kg weight gain, after several weeks of weight stability and improvement in Jeannie’s eating pattern.

Outwith emergencies, wise doctors encourage patients to take as much responsibility for their own recovery as possible—‘control’ is a key component to such patients’ sense of security. However, it is a doctor’s duty both to provide all possible palliative and reparative care and to point out—without blaming or shaming—the associated damage. Eating disorders endanger patients and those around them. Doctors may need to offer unwelcome advice about refraining from sports and certain activities. Binge-purging while driving is rarely disclosed unless you ask, and the risk of collapse also poses a greater hazard for drivers.

1 Aim for a balanced diet, including some of each main food group (protein, carbohydrate, fat) at every main meal. 2 Eat three meals and three snacks each day—evenly spaced eating prevents you from losing control through extreme starvation. 3 Aim to eat new and different foods. Make a list of your ‘forbidden foods’—tick them off one by one as you manage them. 4 Chose normal food instead of ‘low fat’ or ‘slimmer’s’ versions. 5 Write down what you eat in a diary. 6 Write in your diary the feelings or thoughts you experienced while you were eating or drinking, and afterwards, and any eating disordered behaviours you felt compelled to perform.
