What Are Eating Disorder Signs

Eating disorders are not easy to detect. The patient will not dramatically change with regard to body weight. It is only as the eating disorder progresses that changes will become visible. For early detection of eating disorder, the change in habits of the patient should be regarded with concern.

The first signs of an eating disorder are an obsession with weight loss. The patient will check all food items for their calorie content. The patient will continuously exercise. Self induced vomiting and purging on a regular basis are signs of eating disorders in a patient. Eating food in hiding and unusual patterns of eating meals are signs of an eating disorder. Once the disorder progresses, a dramatic loss in weight and body mass is seen. Serious problems like hair loss, insomnia and low blood pressure will reveal that the disorder has reached alarming proportions and the patient needs immediate treatment.
