Introduction to Eating Disorder Research Library

Welcome to Volume 4 of the Eating Disorder Research Library. The primary goal of this newsletter is to provide professionals, patients and families with an update of the most recent research on eating disorders. Each quarterly issue will provide a listing of all indexed research that has occurred in the previous three months with a quick link to an abstract of the article or full text.  Articles are grouped by subject matter to facilitate easy access. We have also created a “Spotlight” section that provides brief reviews of some articles of particular interest. We hope that providing easy access to the basic research in the field will enhance greater use of evidence based information among professionals and greater awareness of the science of the field for patients and families.

AllisonChase.gifFAMILY-BASED TREATMENT FOR TRANSITION AGE YOUTH

Review by Allison Chase

Dimitropoulos, G., Landers, A. L., Freeman, V. E., Novick, J., Cullen, O., Engelberg, M. J., . . . Le Grange, D. (2018). Family-based treatment for transition age youth: parental self-efficacy and caregiver accommodation. Journal of Eating Disorders, 6, 13.

There is evidence that effective interventions are needed to prevent the severe physical and emotional consequences of anorexia nervosa. Among the evidence-based treatment modalities, family-based therapies have been shown to be an impactful intervention. The inclusion of the family or caregiver can help to provide the necessary support to challenge the enduring and pervasive pattern of eating disorder symptomatology. Among the family therapy approaches, manualized Family-Based Treatment (FBT) has been shown to be the most effective treatment approach for medically stable adolescents for anorexia nervosa. While the data has supported FBT for adolescents, for the young adult population, also known as transition age youth (TAY), there is limited research on the impact of family-based therapy. In recognizing the developmental and transitional realities for this young adult populations, a recent intervention FBT-TAY was developed for this population. Consideration was taken to balance the need for support and autonomy in this age group.

While the treatment outcomes for FBT have overall been positive, it is important to better understanding which mechanisms are promoting the positive change. The core principles of FBT assume the active role of the parent to re-nourish and implement behavioral strategies to eliminate eating disorder behaviors. Research has indicated that parental confidence plays a key role in the reduction of eating disorder behaviors, as well as re-nourishing their child. Conversely, it is believed that the feelings of hopelessness and increased anxiety experienced by some parents family-based eating disorder treatment result in inadvertently accommodating the unhealthy behaviors, impacting self-efficacy and treatment success.

The aim of this study was to determine if self-efficacy and caregiver accommodation were impacted during implementation of FBT-TAY. The study was conducted at one adult and two pediatric hospital sites in Canada. The participants self-selected at least one caregiver, defined broadly to include family or friends, to participate in treatment. A total of 26 participants, with a mean age of 18.15 years, were assessed for caregiver accommodation, parental self-efficacy, eating disorder behavior and weight restoration at pre-, post- and 3-month post-treatment. Assessment measures included height and weight measurements, the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire, Parents vs Anorexia (PvA) scale to measure parental self-efficacy, and the Accommodation and Enabling Scale for Eating Disorders (AESED). Results indicated that parental self-efficacy did show an increase throughout treatment; however, only from baseline to 3-month follow-up was it statistically significant. Caregiver accommodation decreased significant during treatment, but results were not sustained at 3-month follow-up. Furthermore, neither parental self-efficacy not caregiver accommodation changes predicted weight restoration or eating disorder behaviors among the transition age youth.

Why is this important?

The study illuminates the importance of further understanding the mechanisms by which treatment interventions can promote change of those transition age youth suffering from an eating disorder. More specifically, eating disorders among this age group provide a unique challenge, marked by the desire for developmentally appropriate independence, yet the presence of an illness that requires more supervision and support. FBT-TAY is a promising treatment and the increased self-efficacy from baseline to 3-month post treatment in caregivers was encouraging, despite the lack of statistical significance. This study acknowledged the limitations with not only sample size but the broad definition of “caregiver”, lacking consistency on how the self-efficacy measure was interpreted by the caregivers. Increasing caregiver confidence and decreasing accommodation during treatment has been shown in prior studies to promote more significant change. Therefore, continued research on how to utilize and improve the impact of caregiver support remains important in enhancing the treatment outcome of transition age youth with eating disorders.

Review by Ovidio Bermudez

Souza, S. P., Antequerdds, R., Aratangy, E. W., Siqueira, S. R. D. T., Cordas, T. A., & Siqueira, J. T. T. (2018). Pain and temporomandibular disorders in patients with eating disorders. Brazilian Oral Research, 32, e51.

Eating disorders cause a plethora of medical complications that involve multiple organ systems. Due to the frequent egosyntonic nature of eating disorders, patients may not seek help directly for the eating pathology but for medical issues that concern them. This includes dental and oral complaints. Therefore, oral health related symptoms may be a reason for which patients seek help and thus an opportunity for early recognition and timely intervention. Pain in general may be one of those reasons for patient’s seeking medical assistance and oral pain is no exception. Oral pain can negatively influence patient’s willingness or ability to eat and their mood. Research in this area has been modest but growing and overall is an important contribution to the eating disorder literature.

This cross-sectional study of adults diagnosed with eating disorders and being followed by an outpatient eating disorders clinic in a large metropolitan area reached two important conclusions. One, patients in all subgroups of ED diagnosis (AN-R, AN-BP, and BN) reported more orofacial pain and TMJ dysfunction than the control although there were no differences across the sub-groups. Second, patients with masticatory orofacial pain were more likely to report pain elsewhere in the body and in other studies this has correlated with higher rates of depression. Patients in this study experienced more depression than controls. This is important because the interference with food intake due to the experience of pain or the negative effect on mood is likely to exacerbate the nutritional state of these individuals. Efforts to include dental health assessments and follow up of identified oral health issues may be important contributions to the treatment of eating disorders. It is also important to educate dental health professionals on eating disorders and the oral complications including oral and facial pain.

Review by Anne Marie O'Melia

Asaad Abdou, T., Esawy, H. I., Abdel Razek Mohamed, G., Hussein Ahmed, H., Elhabiby, M. M., Khalil, S. A., & El-Hawary, Y. A. (2018). Sleep profile in anorexia and bulimia nervosa female patients. Sleep Medicine, 48, 113-116.

Complaints of sleep problems are common in patients with eating disorders. Sleep and food serve as our primary sources of energy. Not surprisingly, sleep and eating patterns have been shown to be closely associated. A deficit in one type of energy source affects the other. Deficits in nutrition have wide ranging impacts on physiologic and psychologic functioning. Sleep deprivation and irregularities similarly impact our cognition, mood, anxiety, hormone balances and, importantly, our hunger and fullness cues. A 2010 study by Kim and colleagues (Psychiatry Res. 2010 Mar 30;176(1):88-90.) showed that approximately half of female patients suffering from anorexia nervosa (AN) or bulimia nervosa (BN) self reported sleep problems, especially problems falling asleep (early insomnia) and problems with frequent wakening during the night (middle insomnia).

A recent study by Abdou et al. sought to better understand sleep patterns in AN and BN female patients using both self-reporting and objective assessment measures. This was a cross sectional study using the Sleep Disorder Questionnaire and full night polysomnography (PSG) in 23 female patients with AN and BN. Depression is also know to affect sleep and this study also assessed depressive symptoms in the patients and control group. Patients were 18–45 year of age and were not receiving any treatment for sleep. Study participants were compared to a sex and age matched control group (20 participants).

All types of insomnia were self-reported at higher incidence in the eating disorder patients compared to controls including early, middle and late (early morning awakening) insomnia. Patients also frequently described several parasomnias including nightmares, sleep related panic and bruxism (teeth grinding and jaw clenching). Similar to the earlier study by Kim et al, both AN and BN patients reported early insomnia was described most commonly (56.5%) followed by middle insomnia (47.8%). Additionally, 21.7% of the eating disorder patients complained of late insomnia and 39% reported parasomnias.

Objective information about sleep gathered via PSG also showed significant differences in AN and BN patient’s sleep architecture compared to controls. The eating disorder patients took longer to fall asleep, had reduced sleep efficiency and a significant increase in their arousal index.

Depression is known to affect sleep complaints and sleep architecture but the PSG data suggests that the AN and BN patients’ sleep problems cannot be explained by their depressive symptoms alone. Elevated depression scores using the Beck Depression Inventory II were correlated to many changes in length and quality of several stages of sleep in patients with AN and were correlated only with a change in Stage 1 sleep in BN patients.

This study observed that sleep problems are common in both BN and AN patients, confirming that sleep and eating disorders are highly correlated. Thus, sleep may be a useful clinical marker in eating disorders. As we continue to understand this connection between sleep issues and eating disorders, we can also become more attentive to developing preventative measures and intervention techniques, both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic in treatment settings.

Review by Millie Plotkin

Williams, V. F., Stahlman, S., & Taubman, S. B. (2018). Diagnoses of eating disorders, active component service members, U.S. Armed Forces, 2013-2017. MSMR: Medical Surveillance Monthly Report, 25(6), 18-25.

In this report on the years 2013-2017, 1788 active service members were diagnosed with current first-time eating disorders, for a crude overall incident rate of 2.7 per 10,000 person-years. These numbers were obtained both through hospitalization and outpatient records. Nearly half (46.6%) were diagnosed as “other/unspecified eating disorder”, followed closely by 41.8% with bulimia nervosa. Only 11.9% were diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. It is important to note that this survey only included new diagnoses during these years, not people who previously been identified. The article explains that a change from ICD-9 to ICD-10 allows for Binge Eating Disorder as a separate diagnosis, therefore future surveys will capture those members diagnosed with BED.

As in the civilian population, women accounted for the majority of those with an eating disorder diagnosis: 67.5%. Incidence rates were highest among younger service members, those age 29 or below. Among women, rates were highest among non-Hispanic whites, however in men, Hispanic and other/unknown races showed higher rates. In women, Marine Corps members had the highest rate of any branch, and in men Army was the highest, but only slightly more than Marines.

Why is this important?

Members of the U.S. military experience many risks for eating disorders, including strict weight and fitness standards. They may turn to disordered behaviors such as restrictive eating, vomiting, and laxatives in order to meet these weight requirements. In addition, there are high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder. Previous studies have shown that military sexual trauma among female service members may be a higher contributor to PTSD and eating disorders than combat trauma. However, the stigma against people with mental illness and fear of discharge from military service leads to underreporting, and therefore the numbers in this study probably do not show the true extent of eating disorder prevalence.

Service members and their families often have difficultly accessing treatment for eating disorders. Although Tricare, the health care benefits service of the U.S. Armed Forces, eliminated annual treatment limits at the end of 2016, they do not cover free-standing treatment centers. This often prevents those in need from taking advantage of the full range of levels of care. Mental health advocates must continue working to improve access as well as prevention efforts for the armed forces.
