Eating disorders can be hard to understand.


It's a word that gets thrown around a lot and is often used as a blanket term for issues with food or body image.


However, it's not always clear what that means.

Eating disorders are mental health conditions that involve an unhealthy relationship between food and your mind or body.


Eating disorders happen when your relationship with food is out of balance it's not just about what you put in your mouth,


But also about what you feel and think about yourself because of your relationship with food.


Although eating disorders can happen at any age, they're most common among young adults aged 18-24.

Well, I can't tell you exactly why it happens.


It's complicated and there isn't one single cause.


But I do know that some things increase the likelihood of developing an eating disorder.


So, here are 3 risk factors to keep in mind:

If you have family members who have struggled with disordered eating behaviors, there's a chance that you might also struggle with an eating disorder.

Childhood trauma can manifest itself as eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia later in life.

If you experienced trauma at an early age, then your brain may have been altered by those experiences and created certain pathways in your brain that could lead to an unhealthy relationship with food in adulthood.

While it is normal to have some level of dissatisfaction with your body.


When this dissatisfaction interferes with your ability to perform your day-to-day living activities then you may be at risk of developing an eating disorder.

Eating disorders are complex conditions that present with a variety of symptoms and may require a combination of treatment options.

It is important to seek professional help if you have any thoughts of becoming preoccupied with food or weight and have lost control over your food intake.

If you're concerned about your health or the health of someone close to you, please contact your primary care physician for further evaluation and diagnosis.
