Abstract

It is possible that 1 to 3 million males in the United States have anorexia and bulimia; thousands more have other forms of disordered eating. Physical complaints often are the first admission of a problem, but symptoms can be misinterpreted resulting in misdiagnosis and ineffective treatment. This article discusses clinical sequelae of eating disorders, specific symptoms and issues in males, and important components of effective treatment.
