Do You Have an Eating Disorder?
An eating disorder is a serious illness that affects a person’s mental and physical health. It is estimated that 10 million US men and 20 million US women have or will have an eating disorder in their lifetime.
According to the latest version of the DSM, there are several different eating disorder diagnoses:
All eating disorders are serious and life-threatening. Eating Disorders require treatment. They affect all organs of the body. The earlier a person with an eating disorder receives treatment, the greater likelihood of recovery.
Most people think of eating disorders and envision a malnourished individual. Time and treatment history has shown eating disorders affect individuals of all different races, genders, social classes, and ages. Meaning, you cannot look at somebody and diagnose them with an eating disorder.
