Abstract:
Eating disorders range from being a picky eater to the severe disorders seen in adolescence. Anorexia and obesity are the dreaded conditions. Their diagnosis and treatment are complicated. In childhood and adolescence, however, if treatment is initiated in good time it is very rare for any of those affected to die of these conditions. The type of treatment depends on the available resources and convictions, both in Europe and in the USA. Early recognition and treatment of these disorders are extremely important. Enormous significance attacnes to having serious talks with the children and adolescents about the problem and to being vigilant. It is often pointless to hope for consensus, which means cooperation with those around the person directly affected is even more important than it would be otherwise.
