ACUTE Medical Mondays
An estimated 20 million women and 10 million men in the U.S. suffer from an eating disorder. And when those disorders become severe, lives are on the line. As many as four out of five premature deaths in anorexia nervosa are a direct result of the physical effects of starvation.
At the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders, it is our greatest mission to distribute the message about anorexia and bulimia and the serious, often times fatal medical complications that can arise from these devastating disorders. Each week we will examine health issues and medical complications that can be caused as a result of a severe eating disorder.
Please share these #medicalmonday posts with your friends and family and help us in our mission to educate and spread the word about the severity of eating disorders.
