What is anorexia nervosa?

Anorexia, or anorexia nervosa, is an eating disorder characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted body image. This leads to self-imposed starvation and extreme weight loss. People with anorexia often have an obsessive preoccupation with food, dieting, and body size, despite being underweight.

Can nutritionists help with anorexia?

Nutritionists can play a crucial role in the treatment and recovery process for people with anorexia. We are an essential profession in a multidisciplinary team including dietitians,  therapists, psychiatrists, and medical doctors. Anorexia nervosa is a complex mental health disorder with physical and psychological aspects in which a comprehensive treatment approach is necessary for healing.

What is the role of a dietitian nutritionist in anorexia treatment?

As Eating Disorder Registered Dietitians and Professionals, we are pivotal in the recovery process. Our nutrition therapy includes:

Nutritional Assessment

Nutrition status assessment, identification of deficiencies, and creating a plan to restore and maintain a healthy balance of nutrients.

Meal Planning

We will work to develop structured, balanced meal plans, address food anxiety, and help normalize eating patterns.

Education and Support

Continued support to help you heal your relationship with food and body. Monitor progress and adjust meal plans. Collaborate with the treatment team.

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.
