Eet stoornissen

People with eating disorders can show a broad range of symptoms often occurring along a continuum between anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Eating disorders are more commonly seen among females; however, males do suffer from these disorders too. The ratio of female to male prevalence is estimated as 6:1 to 10:1. Weight preoccupation is a primary symptom in both anorexia and bulimia. Some patients who initially present with bulimia nervosa may subsequently develop anorexic symptoms. Regardless of the origin of their weight loss, patients who are significantly underweight will require a medically monitored, nutritional rehabilitation program.
