Eating Disorder Symptoms: Spot the Signs in Your Child

“You’re worried.  Your doctor tells you your child’s reluctance to eat and weight loss is just a phase.  That you should just wait and see.  But you know something’s wrong.  You’re afraid its more serious than that.  You’re afraid your child has an eating disorder. Trust your gut, according to Daniel Le Grange, director of the Eating Disorders Program at the University of Chicago Medical Center. “Too often physicians tell parents that it may be just a phase, that they should wait and see what happens,” Le Grange told US News. “Parents are nine times out of 10 spot on in their thinking that something is amiss. The sooner you recognize and diagnose the disorder the better the chances of recovery.”
