Eating Disorders
 Eating disorders

involve serious disturbances in eating behavior, such as extreme and unhealthy reduction of food intake or severe overeating, as well as feelings of distress or extreme concern about body shape or weight.

 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.  Critically important to recognize eating disorders as real and treatable diseases
