Eating Disorders

The pain of eating disorders

Eating disorders are very serious and destructive illness that can cause extreme disturbance to a person’s eating pattern. The most common forms are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.

Types of Eating Disorders

Anorexia Nervosa is an emotional disorder that is recognized by constant fear of gaining weight, forbidding to maintain a healthy body weight, and an impractical perception of body image.

Bulimia Nervosa is a disorder characterized by excessive overeating, followed by frantic efforts to avoid gaining weight.

Binge-Eating is the most common eating disorder in the United States. Unlike bulimia nervosa, binge-eaters do not purge or make any frantic effort to avoid gaining weight after binging large amounts of food in a quick amount of time.

Types of Treatment

Psychotherapy and psychological counseling are the most effective forms of treatment for an eating disorder. Nutritional and medical monitoring are also key components of treatment for eating disorders.
