Eating disorders are serious mental health disorders. They involve severe problems with your thoughts about food and your eating behaviors.
You may eat much less or much more than you need. At times you might exercise to excess or vomit to control your weight.
Eating disorders are medical conditions; they are not a lifestyle choice. They affect your body’s ability to get proper nutrition.
This can lead to health issues, such as heart and kidney problems, or sometimes even death. But there are treatments that can help.
