Introduction to Eating Disorder Research Library

Welcome to Volume 6 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.

Pica, ARFID, and Rumination Disorder Interview

Reviewed by Deborah M. Michel, PhD, CEDS-S

Bryant‐Waugh, R., Micali, N., Cooke, L., Lawson, E. A., Eddy, K. T., & Thomas, J. J. (2019). Development of the Pica, ARFID, and Rumination Disorder Interview, a multi‐informant, semi‐structured interview of feeding disorders across the lifespan: A pilot study for ages 10–22. International Journal of Eating Disorders, 52(4), 378-387.
https://doi.org/10.1002/eat.22958
 
In this article, Bryant-Waugh and colleagues explain the development of a comprehensive, multi-informant, structured interview called the Pica, Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, and Rumination Disorder Interview (PARDI).  The measure allows for diagnosis of these disorders across the lifespan, which is consistent with the new “Feeding and Eating Disorders” chapter in DSM-5.  It also captures relevant clinical features as well as the severity of the conditions with focus among various ARFID clinical presentations.
 
Test development included a multi-step process to generate an initial item pool drawn from existing tests evaluating similar constructs.  The workgroup’s collective clinical expertise was utilized to identify additional items missing from existing measures.  The PARDI includes a screen to rule out other eating disorders, and an introduction to assess developmental, physical, and mental health conditions which would preclude a feeding disorder diagnosis.  The final segments assess diagnostic criteria and the severity of symptoms on a 7-point Likert scale.  Three ARFID profiles described in DSM 5 are measured.  These include sensory sensitivity, lack of interest in eating, and fear of aversive consequences.  The dimensional rating chosen by the authors facilitate multiple symptom evaluation within one clinical profile.  In addition, four parallel Parent/Carer interview versions are available based on subject age to yield multi-informant data.
Psychometric properties of the PARDI were evaluated in a study of 57 males and females ages 10-22, 10 of whom were healthy controls.  Preliminary data indicated adequate acceptability and feasibility (measured by interview length) by those interviewed.  Internal consistency for the profiles ranged from adequate to good and moderate for ARFID diagnosis.  Validity results demonstrated that those with ARFID scored higher than controls on all clinical profiles and on severity of symptoms.  Limitations of the study included small sample size, lack of sample diversity, focus on ARFID, and narrow focus on age groups, all of which need to be addressed in future studies.

Why is this important?

Overall, the PARDI has tremendous promise in filling the need to comprehensively assess Pica, ARFID, and Rumination Disorder over the lifespan from a multi-informant perspective.  Implications include improved evaluations resulting in more accurate diagnosis, enhanced treatment planning, and increased clinical communication on the various dimensions of the profiles.  The fact that the authors generously permit free access to the PARDI allows for wider dissemination of the tool with subsequent research on these disorders as well as the tool itself.

Individuals with eating disorders that involve caloric restriction, over exercise and low weight state and thus have insufficient energy availability (EA) can suffer from a variety of medical complications that include low bone mineral density (LBMD) and increased risk of fractures.  Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism seems to be part of the pathogenesis both in underweight patients as well as in normal weight athletes with female/male athlete triad.  Several studies have made it clear that oral contraceptive pills or other forms of oral estrogen/progesterone replacement do not improve LBMD.  Some more recent studies have reported that transdermal estrogen/progesterone replacement may be of benefit due to bypassing first-pass by the liver among other mechanisms.  Normal weight athletes can also have their bone health affected by low EA specially if they experience oligo-amenorrhea (OAA).  The purpose of this 3-arm study was to compare the response over 12 months of estrogen/progesterone administered trans dermally, orally, or no hormone administration. 
 
121 female athletes between the ages of 14 and 25 years with no differences in baseline characteristics such as weight, BMI, lean or fat body mass were included.  Baseline DXA bone scan were repeated at 6 and 12 months.  73 subjects completed the study.   They were assigned to 3 arms.  The first arm received physiological estrogen replacement via 100 mcg transdermal 17 β E2 applied twice weekly and cyclic micronized progesterone 200 mgs for 12 days each month (PATCH).  The second arm received an oral contraceptive containing 30 mcg of ethynyl estradiol and 0.15 mg of desogestrel (PILL).  The third arm did not receive any estrogen or progesterone (NONE).  All 3 received calcium and Vitamin D supplementation.  The conclusion was that transdermal estrogen over 12 months improves BMD in athletes with OAA, especially compared to oral contraceptive pills containing ethynyl estradiol.
 
Why is this important?
 
This study adds another piece of evidence to our understanding that hypogonadotropic hypogonadism is a consequence of long-standing insufficient EA and pivotal to the complication of LBMD.  Oral testosterone replacement is helpful to improve BMD in men.  Estrogen replacement in a bioavailable fashion (trans dermally) may also improve BMD in females.  This applies to both underweight individuals suffering from an eating disorder and normal weight athletes with OAA.  The key lesson is to continue research to better understand how effective delivery of a pharmacologic agent may make a difference to not to dismiss interventions due to our lack of understanding of how to best deliver or apply.
 

Anne Marie O'MeliaMedical complications in Atypical Anorexia Nervosa

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jadohealth.2018.08.019
 
Admission guidelines for medical treatment of restricting type eating disorders often list low body weight as a reason for inpatient stabilization and careful refeeding. Diagnostic criteria for Anorexia Nervosa (AN) in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder, 5th edition includes “significantly low weight” as a core feature of the illness. Patients with Atypical AN (AAN) meet all of the diagnostic criteria for AN, except that they are within or above the normal weight range despite having lost a significant amount of weight before presentation.   A recent study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health shows that patients with AAN carry the same medical risks as patients with AN.
This study highlights the need to carefully screen for eating disorders in all adolescents, including understanding any changes in their relationship with food, and to monitor all adolescent weight loss, including understanding methods of weight loss.
 
The Melbourne based eating disorders research team show that total weight loss and recent weight loss were stronger predictors than admission weight for several important clinical complications in teenagers with restrictive eating disorders. The study compared total weight loss and recent weight loss with admission weight as predictors of physical and psychological complications in teenagers aged 12 to 19 years with AN or AAN using data from retrospective (2005 to 2010) and prospective (2011 to 2013) studies. They collected data for each participant via chart review of medical records from day 1 up to 28 days following admission or until discharge.
 
Predictors of complications included total weight loss (from lifetime maximum), recent weight loss (from past 3 months), and admission weight. The investigators measured electrolyte balance, clinical, anthropometric, and psychometric markers during admission. Participants’ weights were taken twice weekly during hospitalization. Indicators measured during the clinical course were biochemistry measures, clinical observations, nutrition prescription, anthropometry, psychotropic use, psychometric measures and length of stay.
 
In total, 118 participants with AN and 53 with AAN were included in the study. They were found to have similar risks of electrolyte derangement, vital sign instability and dangerously low heart rate. Greater total weight loss and recent weight loss were stronger predictors than admission weight for the incidence and severity of bradycardia (low heart rate). Total weight loss was the strongest predictor for hypophosphatemia, developed by 41% of participants during treatment. Importantly, no complication was independently associated with simply admitting at a low weight, the hallmark of anorexia.
 
Why is this important?

 
This study illustrates that most adolescents who express an interest in losing weight, and all adolescents with recent, rapid weight loss need to be evaluated for the onset of an eating disorder. They may need specialized medical treatment to avoid life-threatening complications of refeeding syndrome. A patient with AAN will have a body weight that could be classified as being in a “normal” or “healthy” weight range but they are actually just as sick as someone with typical anorexia.  This study helps us understand the need to advocate for patients with AAN and to educate providers, families, teachers and coaches about the need to screen for and treat eating disorders in patients that may not initially look to be at high risk. 

Millie PlotkinWarning labels on fashion images

Kwan, M. Y., Haynos, A. F., Blomquist, K. K., & Roberto, C. A. (2018). Warning labels on fashion images: Short‐and longer‐term effects on body dissatisfaction, eating disorder symptoms, and eating behavior. International Journal of Eating Disorders, 51(10), 1153-1161.
https://doi.org/10.1002/eat.22951
 
It is very common for fashion magazine and advertisements use computer software to digitally alter images to fit the societal ideals of thin bodies and flawless skin. Body image researchers and policy advocates believe these images are contributing to body dissatisfaction. One method proposed to counter this effect is to label photographs with disclaimers so that the viewer will know which ones have been altered.
 
In this study, a group of female college students were asked to view either labeled and unlabeled photographs in a lab setting and also over a period of 4 weeks after. After viewing the pictures once a week, they recorded their reactions of body dissatisfaction. The lab study also included a test snack, with calorie consumption and self-report of subjective binge eating measured. Participants were administered the EDE-Q and the Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire-Appearance Scales (MBSRQ-AS) at both baseline and after the 4 week study.
 
This is the first study on label disclaimers to include an eating component. Participants who self-identified as restrictive eaters ate fewer calories in the test snack after seeing warning labels compared with those who did not view warnings. There was little change in body dissatisfaction in the short-term lab setting, however the 4 week follow-up showed an increase on the orientation scale of the MBSRQ-AS for those who viewed the warning labels.
 
Why is this important?
 
The “Truth in Advertising Act” was introduced in Congress in 2014 for the purpose of studying whether labeling digitally-altered images would be a useful and cost-effective way of fighting negative body image. The bill stalled and has not been reintroduced since 2016, largely due to the growing body of research showing effects similar to this study. However, similar laws have passed in other countries. Great Britain bans the use of digital alteration in advertising of skincare products and France requires that altered images bear the label “re-touched photo”. In the United States, some large companies, including Target and CVS have voluntarily written their own guidelines for use of retouching in advertisements. Target uses unaltered photos to sell swimsuits, while CVS asks all companies who sell makeup in their stores to either leave photos untouched or mark those that are.
 
Studies like this one add to a growing body of research which show that labeling altered images may not be the appropriate action to take. Disclaimer labels do not ameliorate the effect of photographs on body dissatisfaction and some studies even show that the wrong wording on labels can increase negative effects. Further research needs to be done to find the most effective way to educate consumers without causing harm.
