The article discusses remission among patients with eating disorders. Chronic anorexia and bulimia patients have the tendency to have remission and exacerbations based on the findings of Dr. Caroline Koblenzer, clinical professor of dermatology at University of Pennsylvania. She also states it is important to treat the symptoms and to make them aware they are taken seriously as this will enable them to come back. Body image is also an important part of the problem.
