Eating Disorders Expert Witness

Eating disorders, including bulimia and anorexia, are conditions in which the patients suffer from a warped body image that causes them to resort to extreme behaviors to lose weight. Anorexics do not eat enough to sustain energy and health; bulimics have a cycle of binge eating and purging through vomiting or excessive exercise. Eating disorders are treated by psychologists or psychiatrists, on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
