Screening for eating disorders in pregnancy: how uniform screening during a high-risk period could minimize under-recognition.

Abstract

Eating disorders in the United States are on the rise, disproportionally afflict reproductive-age women, and can affect mortality rates as high as those in major depression. (1-3) Though studies have characterized associations of eating disorders with numerous adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, a paucity of studies have addressed diagnosis and management of eating disorders in pregnancy. (4-6) The present work synthesizes current literature to demonstrate how providers can improve identification by capitalizing on this high-risk period.
