In a survey of more than 40 pediatricians and specialists in England, health-care providers reported a doubling, tripling or quadrupling of patients with food restriction disorders compared to last year, according to RCPCH. Centers that specialize in treating adolescents with eating disorders reported long waiting lists and a scarcity of spare beds for inpatient treatment. Pediatricians said they are often seeing children brought in with very progressed diseases, probably because of limited in-person interactions with friends, teachers or doctors who before the pandemic may have noticed changes earlier.
