Eating disorders are a complex medical condition marked by an unhealthy relationship with food and an extreme focus on weight and appearance. Although eating disorders are often associated with affluent societies, they aren’t limited to those with money or social standing. Although they usually begin without awareness, they can become a consuming obsession, eventually affecting every aspect of a person’s life. The cause of eating disorders can range from biological factors, including a family history of the disorder, to social pressures or personality traits. Regardless of where the disorder occurs, the treatment for this condition is varied.
