EATING DISORDERS AWARENESS

Eating Awareness Disorders Week is from 28 February until 6 March in 2022. The charity, beateatingdisorders.com, is campaigning for medical education to include comprehensive training on eating disorders. You can find more at the link below.

Eating disorders can affect anyone, at any time in their lives. Studies show that 25% of eating disorders are suffered by men and there are estimated to be 1.25 million people in the UK who have an eating disorder of some sort.

Healthline.com lists six of the main eating disorders as: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, pica, rumination disorder and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder. They also list purging, night eating and other disorders.

The main thing to know is that eating disorders are mental health conditions that can be treated and supported. It's essential to find help, not only to manage the disorder, but to prevent long-term damage to your body. Please contact me if you think you may have any kind of eating related concerns.
