It usually occurs in young women, starting in their teens, and it is estimated the about 2 per cent of all young women suffer from it.

This comprehensive, practical guide to detecting the early signs of eating disorders and them curing them, encourages parents to understand the illness, overcome their fears and take control of the situation. That may mean enforcing strict meal plans or taking the decision to sek professional help.
