Eating Disorder Assessments
Eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia, are serious behavioral health issues. Answer these Yes/No questions to help you learn the symptoms and warning signs of a number of behavior health issues and help you figure out if you or someone you love is suffering from them. This application consists of the following assessments (surveys), based on assessments from medical and nursing texts:
1) Anorexia: How can I tell if I, my child, or someone I know might have anorexia?
A person with anorexia does not realize the dangers (including hair loss, fatigue and weakness, dehydration, weakened immune system, heart trouble, even death) of denying food to their body. It's also important to know that about 50% of people with anorexia also develop bulimia. Answer these few questions to learn more about the signs of anorexia and help you determine if your child or someone you know may have anorexia.
2) Bulimia: How can I tell if my child or someone I know might have bulimia?
Bulimia suffers are very secretive and some of the symptoms are very subtle. Unlike anorexia sufferers, people with bulimia are more often normal weight or even overweight because they eat so much. It is important to know that 80% of bulimia patients are female and about 50% of people with anorexia also develop bulimia. Take this quick assessment to learn more about the signs of bulimia and help you determine if your child or someone you know may need professional help.
3) Binge Eating: How can I tell if I or my child might be a binge eater?
Binge eating disorder can cause high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatigue, joint pain, Type II diabetes, gallbladder disease, and heart disease. Do you think you may be or know a binge eater? Take this quick assessment to learn more about the symptoms of binge eating and help you determine whether you or your child might be a binge eater.
4) Eating Disorder: How can I tell if my child or someone I know might have an eating disorder?
This assessment can help if your child or someone you know has suspicious eating behaviors, but they don't seem to have anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating or you're not sure which it may be. Answer these questions to learn more about the symptoms of eating disorders in general and help you determine whether your child or someone you know might suffer from an eating disorder.
5) Eating Disorder Contributor: Am I contributing to my child's risk of developing an eating disorder?
As a parent, you may be contributing to your child's risk of developing an eating disorder. Answer these few questions to learn more about how parents may unknowingly contribute to a child's eating disorder and help you evaluate if you may need to modify some of your behaviors.
6) Healthy Body Image: Do I have a healthy view of my body?
Girls as young as 9 years old report some dissatisfaction with their bodies and their body image tends to grow steadily worse as they get older. Girls tend to struggle with body image far more than boys. Most body image feelings will stay with a girl into womanhood. A girl's body image is influenced by peers, media, coaches, parents, siblings, or other family members. Parents influence their daughter's self-image when they comment on their own or someone else's body shape or size. This quick assessment can help you understand what it takes to have a healthy body image.
