Eating disorders are most common in younger people but there are many older adults who suffer from eating disorders.
Facts About Dementia
Around 1.25 million people in the UK suffer from eating disorders and many suffer in silence.
These eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa (Eating very little in order to lose weight), Bulimia (Overeating and purging) and Binge Eating (Severe Overeating at times). This is a major problem because especially with older adults, your body is not as strong as they used to be so you are more vulnerable to having the worst effects of eating disorders.
