"Eating disorders can develop in any stage of life but typically appear during the teen years or young adulthood."

Bulimia Nervosa

This eating disorder is characterized by repeated binge eating followed by behaviors that compensate for the overeating, such as forced vomiting, excessive exercise, or extreme use of laxatives or diuretics. Men and women who suffer from Bulimia may fear weight gain and feel severely unhappy with their body size and shape. 

Binge Eating Disorder

Individuals who suffer from Binge Eating Disorder will frequently lose control over his or her eating. Different from bulimia nervosa however, episodes of binge-eating are not followed by compensatory behaviors, such as purging, fasting, or excessive exercise. Because of this, many people suffering from BED may be obese and at an increased risk of developing other conditions, such as cardiovascular disease.

Can Eating Disorder be Treated?

Yes. A key step in starting recovery begins with finding a qualified eating disorder professional; someone who specializes in eating disorders and will help in coordinating and overseeing care and treatment.  The eating disorder specialist will be vital in developing a treatment plan that is tailored to the person’s individual problems and needs. 

A treatment team may also be formed and coordinated with your eating disorder specialist to address the various complications associated with the illness, such as therapy and nutrition. If outpatient treatment is not enough, these professionals will help you seek higher levels of care.

There’s a step by step process on treating eating disorders. It’s not just because of the love of food or of greed. You may learn more on the types and treatment of Eating Disorder from the Eating Disorder Help.
