Eating disorders can significantly affect a person’s mental and physical health and their overall quality of life. People struggling with these disorders frequently consider their behaviors shameful and feel increasing levels of guilt and shame as time goes on, leading to further unhealthy choices.
When eating disorders develop at a young age, these unhealthy patterns become ingrained and are very difficult to change. If untreated for too long, eating disorders can become very serious, even life-threatening.
These types of disorders also frequently harm relationships with loved ones. It’s common for those experiencing an eating disorder to become withdrawn and isolated, while family members and friends may struggle with feelings of helplessness and frustration.
