Men struggle with Eating Disorders too

Eating disorders have often been associated as a disease that afflicts women primarily, but the number of men who are seeking help for eating disorders is rising.  Overall, there seems to be a deficiency in professional resources for men who might be struggling with an eating disorder, and health professionals may not be appropriately trained to identify and treat men who have eating disorders.  Additionally, men may find it much more challenging to acknowledge diagnosis and treatment as there may not be much support or encouragement to do so.  Men are also susceptible to the cultural pressures that women face, and it is critical that awareness of eating disorders in men is raised so that appropriate help and treatment is available.
