- Oxytocin a Promising
New Treatment for Anorexia - Medscape, 3/18/14 -
"oxytocin reduces patients' unconscious tendencies to focus on food, body
shape, and negative emotions, such as disgust ... We know that people with
anorexia nervosa have abnormal levels and function of oxytocin; we know that
people with AN have abnormal social function, and this is related to
oxytocin function; we know that people with AN treated with oxytocin for 4
weeks, from work done in Sydney, Australia, have a reduction in weight and
shape concern; and finally, we know that oxytocin helps brain plasticity and
stress, and that people with AN have shrunken, starved, stressed brains ...
the AN group showed significant reductions in the attention given toward
eating-related stimuli (P = .030) and toward negative body shape stimuli (P
= .015) when administered oxytocin ... oxytocin appears to be quite safe"
