Addressing atypical anorexia: Part 3

The final episode in our podcast series on atypical anorexia discusses fat bias in health care and its impact on diagnosis and when pushback against diagnosis happens.

In the first 2 episodes of this series Dr. Erin Harrop discussed what can lead to a delayed or even missed diagnosis of atypical anorexia in patients, the necessity of understanding that eating disorders do not all look the same in every patient, and how a multidisciplinary approach could be an effective way to diagnose and manage anorexia nervosa that is atypical.

In the final episode of the series, she discusses how fat bias in the healthcare setting can impact diagnosis and the pushback that can happen when diagnosing.

Part 1 of the series is available here and part 2 is available here.
