Abstract

Adolescent, predominantly female patients suffering from eating disorders usually reveal characteristic personality traits which should be taken into account during the treatment of such cases. Some patients deny their illness, others again feel ashamed of it. At any rate, we ought to respect the patients' integrity and their sense of self-worth. Such disorders tend to result from the stress of being unable to cope with the multiple demands made by the biological and social changes of the patients' development into full maturity. Additional predisposing factors should be noted. Eating disorders are often accompanied by specific psychic and somatic symptoms in terms of comorbidity. These symptoms have to be anamnestically accounted for since they may later result in oral symptoms. A considerable number of these patients suffering from eating disorders either do not completely recover or else tend to relapse.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
