Even the Elderly Are Now Seeking Eating Disorder Treatments in Sacramento and Beyond

Now more than ever, there are cases of men and women well over 50, into their golden years, still struggling with an eating disorder. This is only more proof the eating disorders do not discriminate by race, gender and especially not age. A recent HuggingtonPost.com article offers this information on the subject:

“A 2012 study published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders found that 13 percent of women 50 and over experienced symptoms of an eating disorder over the past five years, according to the National Eating Disorder Association. But while the overwhelming majority of people with eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 26, those suffering later in life still deserve the same help.
