The aim of this paper was to present a review of treatments currently available for eating disorders. We review high-quality level evidence-based trials published in the Cochrane Library for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, eating disorders not otherwise specified and binge eating disorder. Cognitive behavioural therapy is the gold standard for the treatment of bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Whereas treatments currently available for Anorexia Nervosa appear inadequate. Incorporating the family in treatment is of value for young people. New approaches addressing nutrition, cognitive styles and interpersonal relationships show promising findings in the treatment of these life threatening illnesses.
