Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I can try XXXXX XXXXX but what I was looking for was a psychiatrist referral. As was stated, my daughter is under the care of an endocrinologist. She is on a special diet (Atkins) because of the insulin resistance. She is also on metformin (glucophage). So "eating disorder" is really not the main issue as such. Body image and depression is the problem. Her endocrinologist has put off hormone therapy for now till she comes close to her ideal weight. My daughter has suffered problems with "acceptance" at school because she feels she is not pretty enough or good enough. This has been going on since middle school. She now has had a hard time coping. I would prefer to see a psychiatrist who specializes in adolescents to start off with in case she needs a prescribed antidepressant.
