Eating Disorder Quiz Discussion

If you answered yes to any questions, you should discuss the situation with a healthcare provider. Eating disorders are governed by a sense of compulsion. In essence, they’re very similar in some ways to addiction. Once a person has an eating disorder, they need to seek treatment in order to effectively manage it. Compulsions are not easily controlled, which is why treatment for eating disorders is imperative.

An eating disorder involves both psychological and physical aspects. Compulsion disorders are rooted in mental health, but eating disorders can dramatically alter physical health. Every 62 minutes, someone dies as a result of an eating disorder, according to the Eating Disorders Coalition. A healthcare provider who specializes in eating disorders can help sufferers combat these conditions before they worsen and lead to serious health risks. If you suspect you have an eating disorder or are showing any symptoms of a developing disorder, it’s important to talk to your healthcare practitioner right away.
