In the follow-up, the group studied was characterized by self-reported good physical and mental health. This is shown in a 16-year follow-up that Karin Nilsson presents in her dissertation at Umeå University in Sweden.
After only 8 years, 68 percent evinced no diagnosable eating disturbance. Those who recovered most quickly had had fewer bodily complications during the first period of their disease. The former patients expressed that their own high demands were the most important cause of their disorder. For recovery, it was deemed important to reach their own decision to want to be healthy, in combination with external factors. The experience of a turning point could be important in starting down the road to recovery.
Friends, treatment, activities, and family are important for recovery to progress.
- Treatment, in combination with encouragement to take part in ordinary social life, is a key factor of success.
The method involved interviews and assessment guides eight and sixteen years after the debut of the disorder. The interview also took into account patients’ own opinions regarding causes and what was important to their recovery.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
