Abstract

Physiologic management of bulimia nervosa is targeted primarily toward restoration and maintenance of nutrition and prevention and treatment of complications. The intensity, frequency, and duration of care depend on the severity of the disorder. Some form of physiologic management is recommended while the client is in psychotherapy. The client should be monitored for the possibility of hospitalization. Consistent management will allow for better health care.
