In the United States, as many as 10 in 100 young women suffer from an eating disorder. Disordered eating related to stress, poor nutritional habits, and food fads are relatively common problems for youth. In addition, two psychiatric eating disorders - anorexia nervosa and bulimia, are on the increase among teenage girls and young women and often run in families. These two eating disorders also occur in boys, but less often. Parents frequently wonder how to identify symptoms of anorexia nervosa and bulimia. The American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Facts for Families provides concise and up-to-date information on Eating Disorders in Teens for families.
