Eating Disorders Resources & Information
An eating disorder is a serious psychological condition. The sufferer is obsessed with food, diet and often body image to the point where their quality of life suffers, and their health is at extreme risk. Most victims of an eating disorder do not recognize that they have a problem and they will refuse eating disorders treatment and attempt to hide their abnormal behavior from others.
Treatment of eating disorders can take decades, so early identification may be the difference between life and death for the patient.
