While eating disorders are often thought of as disorders of adolescence, they impact adult patients across their lifespan. While many of the characteristics of these disorders are similar for pediatric vs. adult patients, there are important differences in how a primary care provider should assess and treat these illnesses in adults. As with younger patients, most adults report presenting initially to their primary care provider with their eating concerns, and many never seek additional care. This episode focuses on best practices for primary care providers in assessing and treating adult patients with eating disorders. Our guests are Scott Crow, M.D., Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota and Vice President of Psychiatry at Accanto Health, and Carol B. Peterson, Ph.D., L.P., Clinical Psychologist and Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Minnesota.
