The Surprising Similarities Between Anorexia and Obesity

posted by Julie O'Toole on January 28, 2015 at 10:14am

One thing I've observed over the years is that those readers who are interested in anorexia nervosa seem to have little interest in obesity, which they often seem regard as an lifestyle choice irrelevant to them, while those who study obesity often ask themselves what this rare condition (AN) has to do with their vastly more prevalent (read: important) condition of obesity (OB)? Quite a lot, as it turns out. And by the way, it’s worth repeating at the outset, neither condition is one…

Do Parents Cause Eating Disorders?

posted by Julie O'Toole on June 19, 2014 at 12:59am

Sometimes things happen to me that cause me to wonder what planet I have landed on.  Five years ago -- to say nothing of ten or fifteen -- whenever I insisted that parents didn’t cause eating disorders, any more than they cause schizophrenia or bipolar disorder or autism, I was treated like I hadn’t done my homework.  Thankfully, that has changed. Virtually no responsible eating disorder professional of any stature believes that parents cause severe mental illnesses, of which…

The Semmelweis Reflex

posted by Julie O'Toole on May 2, 2014 at 7:30pm

Sometimes I get discouraged by what appears to me to be the excruciating slowness with which new ideas enter the mainstream of medical and psychological teaching and practice.  In the same way that many of us dress in the style that was favored in our youth, many of us do not move far from what we were taught in college or professional school, even when the science has whipped past those teachings with the speed of light. Some professionals even spend their entire lives and careers…

Mixed Symptoms

Recently I was making our daily rounds at Randall Children’s Hospital and received a lesson from a very young patient of ours.  I say it over and over: “your patients are your teachers”, and it is really true.  I was first told this by Dr. Mizuo Tottori, pediatrician and mentor to many other pediatricians in Hawaii. And life itself has borne out the truth of it, again and again.

This particular little patient has anorexia nervosa and has done very well.  Her parents are competent and…

What We Say Matters

posted by Julie O'Toole on March 6, 2014 at 1:18am

I just returned from Tampa, Florida and the 2014 IAEDP conference of professionals involved in the treatment of eating disorders.  I was there to talk about the very young child with anorexia nervosa, and I was slated to talk for three hours. And talk I did. For three hours! That’s an unusually long presentation time, but I was surprised that the audience and I found plenty to say on the subject.  

At the beginning of my presentation I asked everyone to briefly state who they were…
