Manhattan Beach Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Manhattan Beach Teens At Risk For Eating Disorders

Hello! Welcome to the Manhattan Beach children’s health blog. I am health advocate Patti Langell. At this site, I publish information on nutrition and health issues that affect Manhattan Beach children and families. My goal is to improve the state of children’s health in the Los Angeles area.

Despite decades of increased awareness in Los Angeles about the dangers of a distorted body image and extreme dieting, eating disorders are still a serious problem.

A recent American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) study revealed disturbing facts about eating disorders among children.1 According to the report, 0.5 percent of teenage girls in the country are estimated to have anorexia. The bulimia rate among adolescent girls is estimated at more than double that at 1 to 2 percent. Though anorexia and bulimia are usually thought of as a problem for adolescents, Manhattan Beach parents should be aware that even young Los Angeles children are at risk, as well as males, though the rates are lower.

California pediatricians can help Manhattan Beach parents with children affected by an eating disorder. The AAP recommends a combination approach for the treatment of eating disorders in children. Treatment plans usually include nutritional guidance and psychiatric counseling along with the appropriate medical care.
