Abstract

Numerous occupations rely on a person's weight for success. Models and performers present a degree of thinness that is hard to achieve. Media sources frequently advertise weight-loss strategies and diet secrets. Populations like mature females associate weight loss with self-control and slim body types with higher self-esteem. All of this contribute to arise of many eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa. Although it has always been believed that psychiatrists should be in charge of diagnosing and treating eating problems, general care doctors also play a crucial part. The primary care doctor is in charge of coordinating treatment, including the management of problems and assessing if hospitalization is necessary. The primary care physician must collaborate with a multidisciplinary team that includes a nutritionist and a mental health expert. Finally, the primary care physician may be primarily responsible for continuous treatment and for the management of problems.
