Eating disorders affect 1.25 million people in the UK, and the incidence is rising. The DSM-5 specifies diagnostic criteria for eight types of eating disorder, with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder accounting for the majority of cases. This new addition to the Oxford Specialist Handbook of Psychiatry series covers the aetiology, epidemiology, risk factors, and diagnostic criteria for all forms of eating disorders, alongside patient management within the community and inpatient settings. Also featuring chapters on emerging eating disorders, such as orthorexia and muscle dysmorphia, medicolegal issues surrounding involuntary hospitalisation and nasogastric feeding, and acute emergency care, this Handbook is a comprehensive yet succinct addition to the literature for all doctors, nurses, and members of the multidisciplinary team in managing the complex and multifactorial conditions that arise in patients with eating disorders. Each chapter is accompanied by case stories drawn from real-life examples, taking the reader through from initial presentation to treatment, and the key need-to-know facts and current evidence-based treatments. The Oxford Specialist Handbook of Eating Disorders is a new go-to resource for the crucial information around this multifaceted area of medicine.
