The A-Z of Eating Disorders (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


Eating disorders are increasing at an alarming rate. The statistics show a 34% increase in admissions for inpatient care since 2006, while research from the NHS suggests that that up to 6.4% of adults display signs of an eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. This practical, myth-busting book demystifies the issues and terminology around eating disorders. In readable A-Z format, it gives a comprehensive explanation of the different physical and mental aspects of these complex conditions - ending with Z for Zero size.
