Eating Disorders Are Serious Conditions
Eating disorders are serious conditions. If you know someone with Anorexia, Bulima or Binge Eating, or if you think one of your loved ones is becoming anorexic, bulimic or a binge-eater, it is very important to seek advice from an expert, as soon as possible. Early treatment can save the life of someone with an eating disorder.

Helping an Anorexic, Bulimic or Binge Eater May Not be Easy
Teachers, doctors, friends or family members all have a role in detecting an eating disorder and encouraging the sufferer to enter a treatment program. However, the main burden of helping the anorexic, bulimic or binge-eater falls on the family, so it is important for family members to seek information about the signs and dangers of eating disorders, in order to understand more about the eating disorder in question and to help convince the sufferer to accept help.

Help for Eating Disorders
Family members and friends can call local hospitals or university medical centers to find out about eating disorder clinics. College students can check their campus counseling centers for information about eating-disorders and treatment programs. Free literature and online information about most eating disorders, including Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating is available from the sources listed below. Some sources also provide eating-disorder treatment program referrals and information on local self-help groups.

Treatment for Eating Disorders Takes Time
Persuading the sufferer to accept help is one thing. Persuading them to stick with their eating-disorder treatment program is quite another. So be prepared to offer encouragement and support over a period of time.
