Eating Disorder

Other Medical Conditions That Can Occur

Eating disorders frequently occur along with other psychiatric disorders, such as depression, substance abuse, and anxiety disorders. In addition, people who suffer from eating disorders can experience a wide range of physical health complications, including serious heart conditions and kidney failure, which may lead to death. Therefore, it is critically important to recognize eating disorders as real and treatable diseases.
 

Summary

Eating disorders are not due to a failure of will or behavior; rather, they are real, treatable medical illnesses in which certain maladaptive patterns of eating take on a life of their own.
