Treatment of anorexia nervosa

Treating a patient with anorexia nervosa is not easy since he/she is in denial of the disorder afflicting them. The treatment modalities include psychotherapy, family support and medications. Psychotherapy includes cognitive behaviour therapy which is of paramount importance in treating a patient of anorexia nervosa. Medications like anti-depressants and dietary supplements may be prescribed. Family support is essential to prevent relapses. Patients may require hospitalisation in rare cases of severe dehydration, heart disease or seizure. Treatment at the early stages of the disorder has a good prognosis.
