Comparaison de l’apport d’une prise en charge olfactive dans le cadre de troubles du comportement alimentaire, associés ou non à un trouble de l’oralité

Abstract : Olfaction is at the heart of the act of eating since it is the source of 80% of the taste we perceive. This explains the frequency of olfactory disorders in food pathologies. This is why we focused on olfaction in these pathologies such as eating disorders (anorexia type) and failure to thrive. We verified the impact of an olfactory treatment, consisting of repeated weekly olfactory stimuli that were integrated into the treatment process. Firstly, we evaluated the benefit of this care, then we checked its impact according to the pathology of the patients (anorexia associated or not with a failure to thrive). We also focused our attention on food and non-food aspects of odors in order to check if there is a significant difference between these odors’ groups. We also studied the impact of management on the patients’ body weight. We evaluated olfaction in all its components before the start of treatment and three months later. Our results show the benefits of repeated olfactory stimulation in the context of food pathologies studied on several aspects of olfaction, both with anorexic patients and in patients with failure to thrive.
