Tabitha Farrar talks to Dr Graham Redgrave about the research done at Johns Hopkins looking into higher weights and a faster rate of refeeding patients with Anorexia in an inpatient hospital setting. The conversation includes:

  • Refeeding intakes, traditional expectations versus new developements
  • Problems with low target weights
  • Relapse prevention programs
  • Lower rate of relaspe for patients who reach higher BMIs in treatment
  • The case for higher caloric intakes once the risk of refeeding syndrome is past
  • What refeeding syndrome is, and research around this
  • How and when treatment fails patients.
  • Why we need to challenge the current guidelines pertraining to refeeding intakes
