We’ve posted a number of transformation posts in the past with success stories of people losing tremendous amounts of weight to better their lives. Today, we look at another health problem people face all over the country. Anorexia Nervosa affects 1% of Americans with 1 of 5 anorexia cases ending in suicide. As difficult as this disorder is to comprehend, overcoming this health issue is possible. Although the exact causes of anorexia are unknown, the condition sometimes runs in families; young women with a parent or sibling with an eating disorder are likelier to develop one themselves. Males are also prone to the condition, but with more awareness brought to the disorder, hopefully, help can be given to those in need.
If you or someone you know is dealing with this disorder, know that help is out there. Contact the Helpline HERE for any questions or concerns you may have.
And if there is anyone reading this now battling this condition use these examples of people overcoming their anorexia issues as motivation to get back on the right track. Help is out there, don’t be afraid to reach out.
