What to Do About Pica – A Game Plan:

Pica Eating Disorder can be a passing fancy in toddlers or a deadly addiction and anything in between those points. Thus, we need to use a common sense approach to look at pica and ask for help from the approriate professionals.


1) Pica has caused constipation (aso a sign of sexual abuse in some children), intestinal cramps, pain, bowel obstructions, inflammation, gastrointestinal perforations, and infection produced by ingested parasites (can be fatal).
2) MALNUTRITION – Amylophagia can cause weight gain in the presence of malnutrition, a confounding phenomenon – the starch provides calories without nutrients. Amylophagia during pregnancy can look like gestational diabetes and must be considered in the differential diagnosis. Compulsive ice eating can decrease the absorption of nutrients by stomach and intestines and cause malnutrition.
3) Eating lead-based paint or mercury-content paper can result in poisoning.

For a commonsense Game Plan to help you or your loved ones, incuding all the details, access the link above and follow it step by step.
