Eating Disorders

Dr. Michael Dickinson

The question: My teen is going to the gym often and taking an interest in counting calories. While I’m all for her being active and healthy, how do I know if she has or may be developing an eating disorder?

The answer: Sometimes it feels like you just can’t win when you’re a parent. You spend years trying to convince your children of the benefits of physical activity and healthy eating only to find that when they start to take an interest you now worry about eating disorders. Go figure.
