How common is anorexia in men?

It’s common! Although it's under diagnosed for males which makes us sad. Factors for under diagnosis include stereotypes about this being a “female” disease, social stigma, and reluctance of men to seek help for mental health issues.

Treatment for anorexia in males with dietitian nutritionists:

Treatment for males struggling with disorder eating or eating disorders is really no different than any other population we treat. We focus on stabilizing behaviors and consuming adequate energy while working to achieve a path of intuitive eating, and mindful movement all within the health at every size parameter.

Does insurance cover nutrition therapy for anorexia?

We are in-network with many insurance companies. Insurance-based nutrition counseling is based on your insurance provider's approval and specific insurance plan. We can only provide services based on what they allow, following their specific guidelines. Such perimeters include:

  • Limitations in visits 

  • Requiring a certain amount of time in between appointments

  • No additional support between appointments 

  • Check your medical nutrition therapy benefits here.

While nutritional counseling can be beneficial for various conditions, we find that, specifically for those suffering from disordered eating, continuous support and ongoing accountability is the game changer in achieving recovery.

 

We believe that full recovery is possible with the right support and treatment. We look forward to being part of your healing process.
