Finding Help for Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences. Sanford Health’s eating disorders program will help you regain control of your life.
What is an Eating Disorder?
Eating disorders are abnormal eating habits that negatively impact your health.
Though there are a few types of eating disorders, people suffering from eating disorders often share the following traits:
- Low self-esteem
- Fear of “getting fat”
- Intense dislike or unhappiness with their body
- Feelings of helplessness, anxiety, or depression
There are three main eating disorders:
- Anorexia nervosa
- Bulimia nervosa
- Binge eating
While the above refers to three specific behaviors, people with disordered eating often do not fall rigidly into one group. Someone with an eating disorder may display behaviors from all three of these categories.
