Eating disorder... a survey

A research suggests that one in four teenage girls may suffer from the symptoms of an eating disorder.In many girls, the problems appear to set in from a very early age.

Scientists from Canada surveyed 2,85739 girls aged 12 to 18 about their eating habits.They found that 27% had significant symptoms of eating disorders such as binge eating or purging.The girls who took part in the study were asked to complete a standardised questionnaire on eating disorders.//

They found that 14% of girls aged 12 to 14 reported binge eating episodes in the previous month. Almost 9% of this age group reported self-induced vomiting to lose weight. Dr Jones' who lead the team, recommends that girls aged 12-14 should be screened for eating disorders, with a particular focus on those who are overweight.The faster somebody with an eating disorder seeks treatment, the better the chances that it will be successful."
