If you think your loved one has an eating disorder, the first thing you should do is figure out what they’re suffering from. After all, every disorder is treated differently.
For example, if your loved is not taking in the right amount of food and losing a significant amount of weight, they may be suffering from anorexia nervosa. On the other hand, if he or she is consuming a large amount of food but is struggling to prevent weight gain, they may be suffering from binge eating.
