Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate treatment outcomes across the BMI (body mass index)-based DSM-5 severity specifiers in a sample of adult females with anorexia nervosa (AN) treated with enhanced cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT-E). Method: One hundred and twenty-eight participants with AN (64 outpatients and 64 inpatients) were sub-categorised using DSM-5 severity specifiers and compared by baseline clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes at the end of treatment and at 6- and 12-month follow-ups. Results: No significant differences were found across the four severity groups for ‘weight recovery’ (i.e., BMI ≥ 18.5 kg/m2) or ‘good outcome’ (i.e., BMI ≥ 18.5 kg/m2 and minimal accompanying eating disorder psychopathology). Discussion: Our data suggest that the DSM-5 severity specifiers for anorexia nervosa may have limited clinical utility in predicting treatment outcomes of CBT-E.

Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate treatment outcomes across the BMI (body mass index)-based DSM-5 severity specifiers in a sample of adult females with anorexia nervosa (AN) treated with enhanced cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT-E). Method: One hundred and twenty-eight participants with AN (64 outpatients and 64 inpatients) were sub-categorised using DSM-5 severity specifiers and compared by baseline clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes at the end of treatment and at 6- and 12-month follow-ups. Results: No significant differences were found across the four severity groups for ‘weight recovery’ (i.e., BMI ≥ 18.5 kg/m2) or ‘good outcome’ (i.e., BMI ≥ 18.5 kg/m2 and minimal accompanying eating disorder psychopathology). Discussion: Our data suggest that the DSM-5 severity specifiers for anorexia nervosa may have limited clinical utility in predicting treatment outcomes of CBT-E.
