The number of hospitalisations of teenage girls for anorexia and bulimia has almost doubled over 10 years, according to the HSE.

The latest statistics, released under the Freedom of Information Act, show the number of teenage girls aged 12-18 discharged from hospital with a principal diagnosis of anorexia or bulimia rose from 47 cases in 2005 to 93 in 2015.

The number of boys in the same age group discharged with the same diagnosis stood at eight in 2005 and rose to 16 in 2013. However, there were fewer than five such male discharges in 2015.

Meanwhile, the HSE figures indicate the number of teenage girls discharged after hospitalisation for an acute episode of anorexia and bulimia continued to rise steadily between 2011 and 2015, from 40 in 2011 to 71 in 2014 and 93 in 2015.

The number of adult women hospitalised for these eating disorders has fluctuated slightly over the past five years, with 47 women discharged in 2015, while the number of men remains low.

200,000 people affected

The Department of Health estimates up to 200,000 people in Ireland may be affected by eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating, while an estimated 400 new cases emerge each year.

There are no official statistics for deaths relating to eating disorders, however a Department of Health report estimates there could be 80 deaths annually.

What is an eating disorder?

If you are living with any eating disorders, you are not alone. Blogs written by others going through similar experiences and even healthcare professionals are available to provide advice and support. Hypnotherapy treatment helps people overcome anorexia, bulimia and binge eating. 

The most common types of eating disorder are anorexiabulimia  and binge eating. These conditions often involve obsessively focusing on weight, body shape, and food, which leads to dangerous eating behaviour’s and complications.

Severe and long-lasting eating disorders can raise the risk of significant mental health issues, problems with development and growth. Conditions like anxiety and depression, social and relationship problems, and suicidal thoughts and behaviour’s are very prevalent. 

Eating Disorders is a range of abnormal eating habits that can threaten your mental health, physiology, psychologically and socially. In some instances, it can even take your life. For some anorexia, bulimia and binge eating is a way of coping with deep underlying emotional issues.  This website helps to explains how HypnoAnalysis can help you recover from an eating disorder and other mental health issues.

Men with Eating Disorders

In a recent survey of men with an eating disorder, they found very little difference between men and women. Both groups employed various forms of excessive exercise, purging, obsessive calorie counting and going for days without eating. Once the domain of young girls, eating disorders are on the increase within young boys and men. The average age of admission for boys is just 13 whereas for girls its 15.

Whilst anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality rate of all the mental health conditions. 20% of sufferers will die prematurely from their illness, either from physical complications or suicide.

The Department of Health estimates that up to 200,000 people in Ireland may be affected by eating disorders. With an estimated 400 new cases emerge each year, representing 80 deaths annually. But it’s not all bad news, eating disorders are treatable and a full recovery is possible.
