Scary! It's not just us

I often grouse about the haphazard, medically questionable, and even damaging care that families get when seeking eating disorder treatment for their children.

But since in the U.S. children receive "appropriate outpatient medical care" only 47% of the time for routine issues, I guess I need to lower my standards.

And recent "discovery" that child cold medicines have no proof they work and have caused harm reminds me that most treatments for eating disorders are also untested and potentially harmful.

Scary stuff. Scarier, even, than the prospect of Halloween candy for kids in the middle of an eating disorder!
