anyone with anorexia but BMI above 17.5 what was your treatment?Watch
Hi, I used to be in a similar position. I was with CMHT but then they referred me to an EDU (eating disorders unit) because CMHT don’t typically deal with eating disorders. Then at the EDU I went weekly for a 1 hour session with a specialist eating disorders psychologist where I would be weighed every week, we would make meal plans and deal with the psychological side of eating disorders and talked through other things. Very similar to therapy for anxiety (CBT). Was discharged after a year. Hope this helps
That’s very helpful thank you. Was that in Scotland or England? How long did you have to wait for treatment and what made them refer you to the eating disorders unit?
