Eating disorder help fears

16th May 2007

People with eating disorders are failing to seek help for their condition, according to the principal and founder of the National Centre for Eating Disorders.

Deanne Jade says people are suffering from eating disorders but are not seeking help for reasons including a concern about going to their doctor because they think they will not be understood; that they should solve their own problems; and being in a sense of denial regarding their condition.

She said that men may not be comfortable acknowledging they have an eating disorder, though according to the NHS 10% of people with eating disorders are male.
