Goals of treating anorexia & different programs designed for it

There are various types of goals towards treating anorexia. So are there different programs designed for it. The different factors involved in it are:-

o Reduction of physical activities

o Increase of societal activities

o Uses of scheduled habits of eating

Many patients are advised for ‘short hospital stay’ for attending a day treatment program. If the conditions are like the following, the need for longer stay in the hospital may be unavoidable:-

è A noticeable loss of weight is detected in the affected person, which is (if compared with ideal body) below 70%, considering the height and age. This is indicator for life-threatening and severe malnutrition. In this condition, the person is needed to be fed through stomach tube or vein.

è Even treatment cannot solve the problem of weightlessness.

è Different medical complications like low potassium levels, confusion, heart problems etc. may develop.

è The person comes under severe depression to such an extent that committing suicide is thought to be the sole alternative.
