This bonus episode follows our conversation last week with Dr Anita Federici. We take a more in-depth look at the medical issues associated with eating disorders with Andrea Logan, a Nurse Practitioner on the front lines of the pandemic-related eating disorder surge.

We discuss the recent trends observed by Andrea and her team, and how the team works together with the patient and their family to address an eating disorder and the medical complications associated with it. Eating disorders are potentially life-threatening, but with proper treatment they can be overcome.

If you are struggling with an eating disorder, or know someone who is, please get help. This episode is for general information only and is not meant to substitute for medical advice from your health care professional.
