To suffer from a sickness that does not av an diagnosis : Orthorexia nervosa . when health becomes unhelathy (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Ortorexia nervosa är ett fenomen som beskrivs olika runt om i världen och tidigare forskning är bristfällig. Orsakerna till fenomenet är oklara men det kan ses som en samsjuklighet mellan Anorexia nervosa, tvångssyndrom och överträningssyndrom. Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva personers erfarenheter av att drabbas av Ortorexia nervosa. Metod: Data samlades in genom sex bloggar och analyserades med en kvalitativ innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats. Resultat: Ur analysen av datamaterialet framträdde tre huvudkategorier; När hälsa blir ohälsa, vara i ett missbruk och vägen mot frihet. Huvudkategorierna innefattar tio underkategorier. Konklusion: Denna studie har bidragit med mer kunskap om personers erfarenheter av Ortorexia nervosa. Sjuksköterskan kan med fördel använda denna kunskap för att ge en personcentrerad vård. En ytterligare slutsats är att mer kunskap om fenomenet krävs vilket kan bidra till tidigare identifiering och effektivare behandling. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Orthorexia nervosa is a phenomenon that is described differently around the world. The reasons for this phenomenon is unclear but it may be seen as a comorbidity between anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive disorder and overtraining syndrome. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe people's experiences of suffering from Ortorexia nervosa. Method: Data were collected through six blogs and analyzed by a qualitative content analysis with inductive approach. Results: From the analysis of the data emerged three main categories; When health becomes unhealthy, being in an addiction and the way to freedom. The main categories include ten subcategories. Conclusion: This study has contributed more knowledge about people's experiences of orthorexia nervosa. Nurses can benefit from using this knowledge to provide person-centered care. A further conclusion is that more knowledge about the phenomenon is required, which can contribute to earlier detection and more effective treatment.
