Eating Disorders Awareness Week

It's Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

Eating disorders are serious behavior problems. They include

  • Anorexia nervosa, in which you become too thin, but you don't eat enough because you think you are fat
  • Bulimia nervosa, involving periods of overeating followed by purging, sometimes through self-induced vomiting or using laxatives
  • Binge-eating, which is out-of-control eating
  • Learn more by visiting the eating disorders health topic page on MedlinePlus. Also, check out the latest news on eating disorders.
