About Two-Thirds Of Women With Anorexia Nervosa Or Bulimia Will Eventually Recover, Study Suggests

Medical Daily (12/21, Drain) reports research suggests that “around two-thirds of women with anorexia nervosa or bulimia will eventually recover.” Investigators arrived at this conclusion after analyzing data on “246 participants for more than 20 years.” The findingswere published online Dec. 20 in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

Psychiatric News (12/21) reports that even though “‘for most patients with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, recovery is durable, we found that 10.5% of those with anorexia nervosa and 20.5% of those with bulimia nervosa who achieved recovery in the first decade had relapsed at long-term follow-up,’ the authors wrote.”
