Women with eating disorders higher risk of obstetric complications

MARCH 01, 2007

Dr Nadia Micali's study "Risk of Adverse perinatal outcome in women with eating disorders" has been published in the March issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry.  The study investigated the effect of a history of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa on the outcome of pregnancy in a representative sample of the British population.  Women with a history of eating disorders are at a higher risk of major obstetric complications such as miscarriage and lower birth weight.  Please refer to the journal for a full copy of the paper.
