Researchers from Europe and Australia conducted a systematic review of literature on the anorexia nervosa treatments suggested by international clinical guidelines and found that no single option out-performed the others.

The findings highlight why an individualized approach to treating the eating disorder is so important; not only can anorexia nervosa cause lasting damage to a person's body and mind, it can also be fatal.

The review, which was published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal in February, looked at over 14,000 studies. The researchers used 13 randomized controlled trials for psychological treatments to compare 1,047 patients in a meta-analysis.

Almost all medical complications of anorexia nervosa are treatable and reversible with timely and competent medical care.
