Eating Disorders

14:34 EST 15th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Eating disorders are characterised by an abnormal attitude towards food that causes someone to change their eating habits and behaviour.

A person with an eating disorder may focus excessively on their weight and shape, leading them to make unhealthy choices about food with damaging results to their health.  Eating disorders include a range of conditions that can affect someone physically, psychologically and socially. The most common eating disorders are:

  • anorexia nervosa - when someone tries to keep their weight as low as possible, for example by starving themselves or exercising excessively
  • bulimia - when someone tries to control their weight by binge eating and then deliberately being sick or using laxatives (medication to help empty their bowels)
  • binge eating - when someone feels compelled to overeat
  • Some people, particularly young people, may be diagnosed with an eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS).
