“As an Eating Disorder Professional, I know that many of my clients that are in treatment for Anorexia, Bulimia, Bulimarexia, Binge Eating Disorder or Obesity are overwhelmed by all the information in the news about our health. In hopes of relieving some of the stress this can inflict on both my patients and readers, I’ve highlighted some of the weekly health news that was of particular interest to all of us at The Norton Center for Eating Disorders and Obesity. From my eating disorder and obesity treatment center in Cincinnati, here is your weekly news update for the week of November 3-10 2013!”

Letting Go of the Idealized Eating Disorder Recovery – If you hear some in the eating disorder community talk about recovery, you could be forgiven for thinking that they were trying to get you to buy a timeshare at a resort. Recovery, they say, is where you love yourself. You love your body. You accept your imperfections. Your life is good, so good. You’ve gotten to the root of your disorder. And you are never, ever, NEVER going to relapse. You are IN RECOVERY and you are here to stay. Learn More.

What You Should Know About  Diabetes and Bulimia – Women with type 1 diabetes are twice as likely to develop an eating disorder than other women without diabetes. Women who struggle with both conditions typically experience the same symptoms as women who only suffer from an eating disorder. Learn More.

The Real Reason Girls are Reaching Puberty Earlier – Many girls in the U.S. may be entering puberty at younger ages now than in previous decades, and obesity appears to be the major factor contributing to this shift, a new study finds. Learn More.

Demand for Grass-Fed Beef it on the Rise –  Even though it can cost twice as much as conventional beef, demand is becoming higher than supply for meat from cows that eat a natural diet. Learn More.

Eating Disorders More Common in Males than Realized –  Parents and doctors assume eating disorders very rarely affect males. However, a study of 5,527 teenage males from across the U.S. challenges this belief. Boston Children’s Hospital researchers found 17.9 percent of adolescent boys were extremely concerned about their weight and physique. These boys were more likely to start engaging in risky behaviors, including drug use and frequent binge drinking. Learn More.

Solving Pediatric Obesity Problem in Rural Communities –  Using telemedicine to unite clinicians and provide health education for them — and by extension, their patients — is an effective way to manage childhood obesity in remote areas. For these communities, which often have limited access to pediatric subspecialists, having a HEALTH-COP can make all the difference. Learn More.

For Boys with Eating Disorders, Finding Treatment Can Be Hard – Eating disorders are commonly thought to be a problem for girls and women, but an estimated 10 million American men have an eating disorder at some point in their lives, according to the National Eating Disorders Association. Psychologists and psychiatrists who treat eating disorders say those numbers are on the rise. The condition can be life-threatening. Learn More.

Expanded Clinical Definition of Anorexia May Help More Teens – A change in the way anorexia is diagnosed may make it easier to help more teens, not just thin ones, with the illness. Previously, overweight or obese teens were more likely to fall through the cracks when they developed anorexic behaviors. Now, the release of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) has broadened the disorder criteria by taking away the weight requirement. The change shifts the focus of the diagnosis from “being thin” to the behaviors of those with the illness. Learn More.

Study: Dieting Demands from Parents Can Create Teen Eating Disorders – Parents’ attitudes about dinnertime, and about food in general, can have a large impact on their children’s eating habits. A new study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health finds that many teenagers have a negative attitude, psychopathology about food consumption learned from their parents. And eating disorders are often something found to develop during the teenage years. Learn More.

Research Find Measurable Predictors of Eating Disorder Recovery –  New research from Stanford has begun to pin down more concrete barometers of long-term recovery, physical and mental signs that could indicate whether a patient is ready to end treatment or perhaps might require more. Learn More.

Reduced Fat Milk Contributing to Obesity?!? – One of the standard recommendations offered by health professionals to consumers is to consume 3 servings a day of low fat / non fat dairy. The USDA MyPlate recommendations show a glass of milk as part the infographic depicting what people should eat. But what if skim milk was actually not doing anything to help our waistline? This seemingly strange conclusion has been reached by two well respected researchers – David Ludwig, of Boston’s Children Hospital, and Dr. Walter Willett, of the Harvard School of Public Health. Learn More.

Link Found Between ADHD and Obesity – A 33-year study has found that men with a childhood history of ADHD had double the incidence of obesity compared to non-ADHD men. Learn More.

Identical Twins with Significant Weight Differences Shed Light on the Phenomenon of Metabolically Healthy Obesity – A unique study of 16 pairs of identical twins in which one twin is obese and the other lean has yielded some surprising results. In 8 of the pairs of twins, the obese twin was as ‘metabolically healthy’ as his or her lean co-twin, while in the other 8 pairs, the obese twin had a poorer blood fat profile, higher liver fat and increased insulin production and resistance, and higher blood pressure — all hallmarks of unhealthy obesity that can lead to diabetes, heart problems and other complications.

The Anorexic Brain: Neuroimaging Improves Understanding of Eating Disorders – Using brain imaging tools and other methods to explore what’s going on in patients’ minds, researchers have scraped together clues that suggest anorexics are wired differently than healthy people. Learn More.

What You Need to Know About Men and Eating Disorders – Eating disorders aren’t just a “woman thing.” People of all gender identifications, ages, races and sexualities suffer from eating disorders and struggle with body image issues, but the majority of eating disorder research is conducted on young, white women. In the past decade or so, there has been increasing importance placed on understanding the impact these issues have on men. Learn More.

The Things That Take the Place of the Eating Disorder

More Than You Can Chew: Binge Eating, Suicide, and Minority Girls – Full-syndrome eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder get the lion’s share of research money and media attention. But subthreshold disorders are often just as serious and affect more people. Eating disorders in minority populations (where, in this case, “minority” means anything other than young, white females) also get much less attention. Learn More.

Boy Scouts Don’t Understand that Stigmatizing Obese Kids Doesn’t Help Anyone – The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) raised eyebrows this summer when the group announced that the quadrennial Boy Scout Jamboree, which wrapped up last week in West Virginia, would ban children whose body mass index (BMI) was over 40 and require children whose BMI was above 32 to submit medical information to be included in the event. While the BSA deserves credit for its commitment to the heath and well-being of children, and for its efforts to address the difficult issue of childhood obesity, the decision risks perpetuating a stigma which could in fact make the problem worse.
