Eating Disorders Have Dangerous Consequences

Eating Disorders Troubled Teens

In today’s society, teens experience tremendous social pressure to maintain an unrealistic body image.  This can be incredibly harmful to teens physically and mentally, sometimes going so far as to cause them to develop dangerous eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.  Recent studies suggest these conditions develop in roughly 4 percent of teens.  Teenagers suffering from anorexia or bulimia will lose weight very quickly which can often result in long term organ damage and other health problems.  With this in mind, if you believe your teen may have an eating disorder please do not wait to seek out help.  It is also important for parents to be able to recognize the signs of an eating disorder such as developing irrational and angry behavior, engaging in repetitive exercises, eating very little food, and suddenly wearing much baggier clothes. Please be aware of the dangerous conditions these signs may indicate.   If you have a troubled teen that may be struggling with an eating disorder, please contact us immediately.
