Transcript of Eating Disorders
Anorexia nervosa, or more commonly known as anorexia, is an eating disorder caused by self-starvation to become dangerously thin. This disorder is common among female teens that are ages 14-18. These people change their diet to eat less and less and to exercise more because of their low self-esteem and poor body image.
Bulimia nervosa, or bulimia, is a disorder when someone eats a large amount of food then secretly throws it up. They could also take laxatives to remove the food. People with bulimia are very concerned about losing weight, the same as anorexic people. They don't tend to become as thin though. It is hard to recognize if someone has bulimia because the signs are very subtle. They might go to the bathroom right after a meal so they could vomit. Another sign is swollen cheeks from constant vomiting.

Side Effects of Binge Eating
When people with a binge eating disorder eat large amounts of food, they will have serious weight problems and might become obese. Many compulsive eaters' depression can lead to low self-esteem and will think of their body in a bad way (poor body image.)
Side Effects of Bulimia Nervosa
People with bulimia aren't usually at risk for starving to death, but are at risk for other damaging side effects. The stomach acids from frequent vomiting can eat away at the tooth enamel, mouth, and throat areas. Other common side effects are hormone imbalance, dehydration, damage of the kidneys and liver, and loss of important minerals.
Eating disorders are when a damaging eating habit can lead to illness or death. The three main types of eating disorders are binge eating disorders, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia nervosa.
Side Effects of Anorexia Nervosa
A series of problems can occur when the body isn't getting enough food that it needs. The lack of nutrition can cause the body to not be able to grow and repair itself. The bones become so weak and thin from the lack of calcium. Body temperatures are likely to drop; same with blood pressure. The causes of death from untreated anorexia can be starvation, kidney failure, and many other medical complications. Many people with anorexia become suicidal because of their depression.
