Allison Baker, MD and Deborah Glasofer, PhD
Many aspects of the United States culture display an obsession with weight loss. Women's magazines typically have a cover highlighting a story about weight management, dieting hints, or how to tighten specific muscle groups. Models and actors display an unattainable level of thinness. Some athletes relentlessly pursue a leaner body for performance enhancement. In this blog radio program, Drs. Deborah Glasofer and Allie Baker will answer important questions about the medical and scientific facts of eating disorders. We will cover important information about early warning signs of disordered eating and what constitutes an eating disorder. Finally, we will discuss treatment approaches in depth, ranging from psychotherapy, medication management, and family work.
