Eating Disorder Help

 

Anorexia

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterised by the refusal to maintain a healthy body weight and an obsessive fear of gaining weight. The diagnostic criteria for anorexia nervosa are a BMI of 17.5 or below and amenorrhea (absence of the menstrual cycle) for up to 3 months. While eating disorders affect both sexes, anorexia is more common in girls and young women, although cases in men are on the rise. Despite being uncommon, anorexia has the highest mortality rate and is therefore a serious condition. Residential anorexia treatment and early detection greatly enhance the chances for successful eating disorder recovery.

Bulimia

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder that causes those affected to restrict food.  This is the common ailment among several celebrities with eating disorders.This is followed by a binging period where the sufferer will attempt to purge the over intake of food. Bulimia is an eating disorder which results in a deep sense of shame and low self-esteem. Sufferers are often highly secretive about this eating disorder and the behaviour that accompanies it. Bulimia treatment is best addressed at a residential treatment facility, where under-lying issues can be addressed whilst helping introduce a healthy relationship with food.

Binge Eating

Compulsive eating disorder is often misdiagnosed as obesity. Whilst obesity is a possible symptom, not all obese individuals have compulsive eating disorder and often people in a normal weight range can suffer from compulsive eating disorder. Essentially the behaviour consists of frequent episodes of binge eating, often in an uncontrolled or frenzied manner, where the sufferer will eat beyond the point of being comfortably full. The emotional impacts of this behaviour are often significant feelings of guilt and depression. Treatment for compulsive eating disorder works to address the behavioural or emotional mechanisms behind the relationship with food.

Atypical

Atypical eating disorder refers to behaviours or eating patterns that do not fit into the strict definition of a single eating disorder. That means sufferers could show signs of several eating disorders or present completely unique symptoms. For example, an atypical sufferer may rid themselves of food, and therefore calories they have consumed, through vomiting or using laxatives, however unlike a bulimic, they do not binge eat. Atypical eating disorder can be difficult to beat but with the right treatment anyone can start a successful recovery.
