Eating disorders affect people of all ages, but are most common among young women. Eating disorders can create a myriad of medical problems including permanent bone loss, temporary menstrual irregularities, infertility, dehydration, and cardiac arrhythmias.

In some cases, these complications are severe enough to cause death.

But help is available for the eating disorder as well as the medical complications for all who seek it.

If you have any questions regarding the medical complications of eating disorders, please feel free to contact me by e-mail:
