Thanks for this article, my d is BMI 20 and is really still in the thick of ED behaviour. Gonna keep pushing up until her real self returns. As we say Down Under, it's all about the state, not weight, mate!

Thank you, It is so important. 
It is wonderful that Dr Muhlheim listens to us parents.
Even better news, is that she is doing a study and writing a paper on this with other clinicians currently.
