Here is an interesting study that was completed in 2017 and published by the Journal of Psychosomatic Research.
A few highlights:
•Female AN patients are more likely diagnosed as digestive, endocrine, and mental disorders....
•Female AN patients use more outpatient services, mainly due to psychiatric visits.
•An earlier diagnosis of AN causes lower medical utilization and lower expenditure.
•We advocate the increasing alertness of physical illnesses with AN among medical professional.
This study also suggests that a person will suffer from a AN for 4 years on average BEFORE the eating disorder was recognized and treated.
