‘Health from Todo Twitch’, addresses eating disorders

“Health from Todo Twitch” spoke at Eating Disorders (TCA) this Wednesday. The space, which was broadcast by Joan Carles March, on the Twitch GranadaDigital, Facebook and YouTube channels, on the origin of this type of pathology, the consequences and problems, for the environment of those who suffer from them. In this regard, the researcher and teacher of the School of Public Health of Andalusia had the participation of health professionals and representatives of specialized associations in this matter for the most in-depth analysis.

In the initial block program, March discussed eating disorders with Sara Bujalance, president of the Catalan Anorexia Association; Patricia Cervera, President of TCA Andalucía; Pilar Antel, Vice President of Adaner Granata and Mari Carmen Galindo, President of the National Federation of Anorexia and Bulimia Associations. “Due to the pandemic, the increase is very significant,” explained Bujalance, who estimated that the cases tripled in the most important moments of the health crisis and now double the number of patients suffering from these pathologies before him. “It is very important to recognize the symptoms and intervene as soon as possible,” he added.

Patricia Cervera, who had cases of these disorders in her family, considers that “progress” has been made in this sense, although “many more resources” are required in her opinion. “Ciamdp this disease appears in our house, it scares us a lot, sometimes we don’t want to face it,” he said. Pilar Antelo points out that TCA does not appear from one day to the next. “There are many things that don’t work well,” he explained.

In the second obstacle, which dealt with the matter from a more psychological perspective, Marta Carulla, a psychiatrist at St. John of God Hospital, moved in this opinion. “The cause is multifactorial. Sometimes food is the tip of the iceberg,” he added, pointing out that “it is more invisible in children.” In this line, Luis Beato, a child psychiatrist from Ciudad Real, contributed “what seems to be most anorexia, but the most common symptoms are binge eating disorder and bulimia”.

“These are the ones getting younger and with psychosocial problems,” explained José Guerrero, head of the psychiatric service at the Virgine de las Nieves hospital, who encouraged the creation of a “respect center” that treats eating disorders. “It is very important to detect the feelings of colleagues,” explained the family doctor and coordinator of the mental group Semfyc, Víctor Expósito Duque, who believes that it is “the basis of perfectionism and demand”. “The attack is done,” he concluded.

The third radio scandal stimulated different methods of working in psychology to combat these disturbances. Natalia López, a psychologist at Adaner Málaga, indicated that “one of the most difficult cases is when patients have made their identity disorder”, which has generated a “void” in their lives. Ángela Taladriz, psychologist of Adaner Madrid, defends “being a nutritionist or endocrinologist” in treatment, in parallel with psychological work. “We have to understand that eating disorders take a long time. One of the things that are exposed is not something that will be solved soon, it takes time,” added Isabella Cantero, a psychologist who invited the sufferers. from these questions which are directed “to professionals or special associations”.

The last episode of the program consisted of two interviews with experts who have dealt with eating disorders in various ways. In an interview with Joan Carlos March, Jordi Mitjà, a nurse at the Saint Joan de Deu Hospital, presented an initiative that “uses social networks therapeutically”, especially TikTok. Marta Tena, the founder and president of “Eat Fear”, as well as the general director of the TCA Kidney Clinic, who also presents a document on the use of social networks. “If a teenager intends to spend his life on social networks, he doesn’t really value his life.”
