Eating disorders affect more than 30 million people in the U.S. It’s a serious condition that impacts all genders, races, and ethnic groups, and it can negatively impact one’s health, emotions, and ability to function in all areas of life. Most eating disorders involve focusing too much on weight, body shape, and food, leading to dangerous eating behaviors that can harm the heart, digestive system, bones, teeth and mouth, and lead to other diseases.
The good news is that with proper treatment and early intervention, your child can return to healthier eating habits and reverse serious complications caused by eating disorders.
