Anorexia is one of the most terrible diseases and one of the few people who receive the proper attention. The number of years has increased and increases people whose heart has ceased to play at the expense of society that has caused false stereotypes. But not only anorexia, but other eating disorders, such as bulimia, are extremely voracity vulnerabilities where vomiting and manorish are self-awakening, a disorder of men, including, among other things, extreme athletic activity.
According to figures from the Ministry of Health, in Colombia between 2009 and 2017, 0 to 19 years of age with anorexia were diagnosed. An average of 4,322 patients were treated annually, of whom 60,8% are women, which is really alarming because very few people are aware of the problems that these diseases bring with them; It should be noted that girls suffer from the smallest age.
In Mexico, 20,000 new cases of bulimia and anorexia among young people are documented annually, which has increased by 300% over the past 20 years, according to the Excelsior newspaper. In addition, the National Institute of Psychiatry showed that 10% with anorexia and bulimia 17% had attempted suicide, while only 25% received special treatment.
Buenos Aires and Argentina have Ceda Center where they offer interdisciplinary, individual and ambulatory care focused on bulimia, anorexia and other eating disorder. They have a group of experts in the field, psychologists, psychiatrists, family therapists and nutritionists who work for these diseases because it is a misconception to call these diseases "idiotic" when they truly specialize in the innocent people society defines as beauty.
The number of people suffering from these diseases is growing and they bring consequences like depression, suicide and anxiety. Bullying, bullying and mockery of physical and personal occurrences are also a boom for the development of this type of disorder. Today, there are many children, young people and adults who are struggling to overcome this "Caprice" program.
