We Treat Eating Disorders Such As Anorexia & Bulimia

Eating disorders are characterised by abnormal eating habits that can interfere with a person’s physical and mental health. There are three main types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorders.

Anorexia nervosa is characterized by self-starvation and excessive weight loss.

Bulimia nervosa is characterized by binge eating and then purging, which can be self-induced vomiting or using laxatives.

Binge-eating disorder is characterised by recurrent episodes of compulsive overeating without purging.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Eating Disorders?

Depending on the type of eating disorder, the signs and symptoms can be different, but they tend to fall into four groups:

  • Changes in eating habits—such as drastic changes in weight, eating more or less than usual, skipping meals or binge-eating—
  • Changes in mood – such as feeling anxious, depressed, irritable, or moody.
  • Changes in behaviour, like staying away from friends and activities; being obsessed with food or dieting; throwing up after eating, or doing dangerous things.
  • Changes in physical well-being—such as feeling tired, dizzy or faint; hair loss; dry skin; brittle nails.
