Royal Melbourne Hospital has the largest inpatient unit for the treatment of eating disorders in Victoria. Individuals with eating disorders commonly present with somatic and gastrointestinal complaints. Malnutrition and eating disorder behaviours can lead to numerous gastrointestinal complications including gastroparesis, constipation, pancreatitis and gastro-oesophageal reflux.
This project would be designed to explore the rates of gastrointestinal symptoms in an (inpatient) cohort of individuals with eating disorders and evaluate the relationship between GI symptoms and psychological distress.
