Prevention: Getting Your Child Off the Couch

Currently in the United States we are experiencing an epidemic of obesity, especially among children. The fastest growing age group is from 2-5 years old.  Many of my patients started out as overweight children. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the percentage of overweight children 2-5 years of age has doubled, with one in four pre-schooler’s being overweight or at risk for obesity.

The degree to which the patient can do this determines her success in conquering her disorder.

ADHD and Incidence of Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders Common In ADHD Girls: Compulsive Behavior Tied To Body Image Problems Girls with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are more likely to have an eating disorder, a new study said. “Adolescent girls with ADHD frequently develop body-image dissatisfaction and may go through repeating cycles of binge eating and purging behaviors that are common in bulimia nervosa,” said University of Virginia psychologist Amori Yee Mikami. ADHD is thought to be three times more common in boys than girls, so researchers are still learning its long-term effects on girls.
