Eating disorders usually start in the teenage years and are more common in girls than boys. The number of young people who develop an eating disorder is small but eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa can have serious consequences for their physical health and development. Eating disorders are serious and often fatal illnesses that cause severe disturbances to a person’s eating behaviours. Obsessions with food, body weight, and shape may also signal an eating disorder. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.
