Surveys estimate that 20 million women and 10 million men in the United States will struggle with an eating disorder at some point during their lifetime.1 Even more troubling is the diagnosis of eating disorders in children at younger ages many of whom report weight concerns starting as young as six years old1. Registered dietitian nutritionists are an essential part of the multidisciplinary treatment team for eating disorder patients. These disorders are physically, mentally, psychologically, socially, and financially debilitating and can be life threatening.
