Eating Disorders - DRHC Dubai Psychiatry Clinic

Eating disorders are complex and serious mental health conditions characterized by unhealthy eating habits and often a preoccupation with food, weight, and body shape. The most common types of eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder.

Anorexia Nervosa:

Individuals with anorexia nervosa may see themselves as overweight, even when they are underweight. They often severely restrict their food intake, leading to significant weight loss. They may also engage in excessive exercise and have a distorted body image.

Bulimia Nervosa:

People with bulimia nervosa typically eat large amounts of food in a short period (binge eating) and then try to rid themselves of the extra calories through unhealthy means, such as self-induced vomiting or excessive exercise. They may also have a distorted body image and be overly concerned about their weight and shape.

Binge Eating Disorder:

Binge eating disorder is characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating without the use of inappropriate compensatory behaviors, such as purging. Individuals with this disorder may feel a loss of control during these episodes and may experience feelings of guilt, shame, or distress afterward.
