Seven eating disorder symptoms and hazards

2018-04-24 01:36:35

Eating disorders have the highest death rate of any mental illness. Even more than extreme depression. People with eating disorders don't usually seek medical help. Only one in 10 people with an eating disorder seek treatment, so whether you're a concerned parent, a concerned friend or having doubts about your own behavior, these are the different eating disorders and symptoms to look out for.


Skipping meals or going on extreme diets can be very dangerous, and while dieting can be unhealthy, anorexia can kill you. The unhealthy body standards in our society create a dangerous environment for women, especially teenagers. Anorexia nervosa is an extreme lack of food, nutrients and calories that can perform basic functions in the body. For women, anorexia can cause menstrual periods to stop altogether and increase the risk of heart attack and disease.


In contrast to anorexia, binge eating is an eating disorder that causes extreme weight gain. Overeating can be too much, too often. Like all other eating disorders, overeating is associated with depression and anxiety. Some people may use food to treat anxiety, or as a symptom of depression. Signs of overeating include eating when full or not hungry, and separating yourself from others in order to eat. Obesity increases the risk of heart failure, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, stroke and more.


Exercise anorexia is characterized by too much exercise leading to physical strain without proper food and diet to support it. Signs may include going to the gym too much and not eating enough, or eating and then exercising too much. Exercise in people with exercise anorexia may cause more damage to the body.


As with overeating, eating more food in the evening means that a person who is inactive will have less energy expenditure because they are eating. Just like overeating, eating too many unhealthy foods such as those high in sodium, fat or sugar can lead to diabetes and heart disease. Eating at night can also lead to sleep directly after eating, resulting in indigestion and food retention.


Drinking or binge drinking while restricting food intake is a particularly dangerous condition. Alcoholic beverages contain a lot of hidden calories, alcohol itself has many negative effects on your body, but the lack of proper food and nutrition, which can lead to more dangerous, extreme effects. Binge eating is often caused by the same types of factors as other eating disorders. Social stress and mental health trauma can increase alcoholism or any eating disorder mixed with alcoholism or alcoholism.


Pica eating or chewing non-foods can be an obsessive-compulsive disorder caused by anxiety or a lack of proper eating. This condition can be very dangerous because it involves eating objects that should not be ingested, such as hair or paper. Pica syndrome can also be associated with anorexia when someone consumes too much water or ice to replace food or distract from hunger. Ingesting non-food materials can cause blockages and cause internal punctures or poison the body.
