b) Types of Eating Disorders: Eating disorders encompass a range of diagnoses, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and other specified feeding or eating disorders (OSFED). Each disorder has its unique characteristics and treatment considerations.
c) Physical and Emotional Impact: Eating disorders can lead to severe physical health consequences, including malnutrition, organ damage, and hormonal imbalances. They also have a profound impact on emotional well-being, self-esteem, relationships, and overall quality of life.
