Dysphagia: Difficulty Swallowing and Eating Disorders

Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) means it takes more time and effort to move food or liquid from your mouth to your stomach. Dysphagia may also be associated with pain. In some cases, swallowing may be impossible.

This webinar helps others understand dysphagia in people with eating disorders and severe eating disorders. It goes over symptoms, causes and treatments for dysphagia.
