Face up to eating disorders, and seek help

A new study has found young people are leaving it ‘too late’ to seek help for eating disorders, citing fear of losing control over their eating or weight, denial, and failure to perceive the severity of the illness as reasons not to get professional advice. The recent online survey of almost 300 Australian young adults aged 18-25 years found even those with anorexia or bulimia had reasons to delay getting treatment.
