In lay speak, what would "don't tend to precipitate past the early 30's" translate to? That is, does precipitate mean start, continue, something else? (I'm presuming it doesn't mean to fall out of the sky onto people?)

Default ^That's interesting...

Because I would just intuitively look at comparisons to substance-abuse. Like how addicts can develop a functionality within their compulsion to use or abuse. Like an alcoholic gravitating toward a line of work where they can be drunk most of the time or living over a bar.

For an anorexic or bulimic or, especially, an exercise-bulimic, I would speculate that there are a good number of coping-mechanisms which might help to mitigate the noticeability of whatever condition. Things many of us wouldn't even normally conceive of without having lived with such a disorder or at least a person afflicted with it.

So, in that way, people can certainly continue to live and appear to thrive while still enduring and being affected by all kinds of difficulty....

"don't tend to precipitate.." = will not continue to be triggered...

PolarKat basically got it. In psychiatric terms, "precipitate" usually refers to first incidence of disease.

That may be the case - it's hard to get an accurate estimate, and I think they mainly use hospitalization records and psychiatrist reports to document. Basically, there are fewer self-reports of new disease emergence, fewer hospitalizations, and the patients report disease remission, to a degree. That's what she was saying, at least - I can't personally vouch for it, because I never did that research.

I haven't spoken to this woman in ~2 years, because she changed institutions. The last time we corresponded, I advised her on some methods and possible gene targets, but am not sure what she decided to do. Should really look this up
