    Hypermetobolic in

    An_246429 posted:
    My daughter is now in an inpatient treatment facility to help in her recovery from severe anorexia. She has been there for 30 days and is hypermetobolic and has only gained around 5 pounds so they keep increasing her meal plan which is now over 4,000 calories. She is eating everything they ask her to eat but she is in physical and mental pain over the volume of food, however, in her hypermetobolic state she would loose weight if they lowered he caloric intake.

    I just wondered if anyone experience this condition and if they know how long it will be before her metaabolism regulates.

    I hope someone has teh ansser
