Eating disorder - DD admitted to Priory - latest update post 543 23rd August

My dd17 has always been tall and very slim.
However she has been intentionally eating less over the last 12 months ( we didn't realise until recently it was intentional , she has always had a small appetite ) .
It may sound daft but we didn't realise how much she had lost.
She is now 6 stone / 38 kilo and has a bmi of 12.
She has been under the local CAMHS service for 3 months but only about a month ago did we realise her issues were largely being caused by her weight and equally didn't realise how dangerously low her weight was.
She is not anorexic in the traditional sense , no body image issues , and now realises the error of her ways and really wants to put weight on.
But she is struggling to eat enough due to the size of her stomach.
She is trying to stick to a new meal/ snack plan which she does reasonably well - the result is that her weight has stabilised but it needs to go up.
We have a meeting set up with CAMHS at which we believe if no progress has been made , she will be offered to become an outpatient at either the priory in altrincham of galaxy house at the Manchester children's hospital.
If her weight has dropped , she might have to become an inpatient, but not sure where that might be
Does any one have any experience with any of these units , or any other advice ?

Thanks for reading

Not direct experience but a very good friend of my eldest DD was admitted to The Priory due to anorexia. She had been under the care of mental health teams but needed more intense support so was admitted. From what my daughter has told me the results have been absolutely life changing for her friend. She was an in patient for over 6 months, but during that time increased her body weight and realigned her relationship with food (as well as helping her with her body image issues, which she did have). It wasn't easy, especially in the early days but she now has a BMI in the 'normal' range and eats a healthy varied diet.

No experience of units - but in order to put on weight safely, I would suggest a protein led diet ( to repair and add muscle ) with complex non sugar or refined carbohydrates. Perhaps a good quality protein shake ( 30g per scoop ), tuna and fish meals, chicken and turkey. Brown rice, quinoa and pulses. Cook with extra virgin olive oil. Vitamin sprays rather than pills ( Holland and Barratt ) Empty calories ( soda, mcDonalds etc ) will put on weight - but will decrease health so best to avoid those

Hope your daughter recovers x

No experience of eating disorders but a family member recently spent 6 weeks at the Priory in Altrincham as an in patient. She is now being treated as an out patient for about the next year. The programme of care and therapy they put together for her was second to none and she is miles away now from where she was when she went in. It was very expensive though. Private healthcare only covered the first 28 days, I think it cost something like 5k a week for the last 2 weeks she was in.

Best wishes to your daughter and family, I'm sure its a strain on you all with the constant worry.

I know a girl who was anorexic (My kids deputy heads DD), Her mum actually works with the school and CAMHS and didn't realise to begin with what the girl was going. She has been a inpatient twice now, First time without much success she gained weight but lost it when she came out.. Second time made a massive difference and she came out a changed person and has so far stayed healthy.

I do unfortunately have experience with CAMHS, my DD saw them for another reason.. 1st time was useless the counsellor couldn't have been more condescending if she tried. 2nd attempt she didn't really want their help.. 3rd attempt with a different counsellor and the help of a keyworker at school we got there..

Thanks for all your support . Earpoppin is there a good website that explains the benefits of each type of food group. I'm afraid I know nothing of what foods do what , or even what foods fall into what categories. The food plan she has been given ( only started a month ago ) just seems to be aimed at regular eating ( meal, snack, drink) but we have had no advice really as to what to kind of foods to have. We have been given a suggested meal plan , but it just seems like everyday stuff to me.
