Health Tip: Talking to a Loved One About Anorexia

Health Tip: Talking to a Loved One About Anorexia

08/20/10

(HealthDay News) -- If you suspect that a loved one is anorexic, the topic can be difficult to discuss.

Womenshealth.gov offers these suggestions for approaching a loved one about anorexia:

  • Schedule time to talk privately, when neither of you will be distracted.
  • Express your concern about your loved one's eating habits.
  • Suggest that your loved one speak with a professional.
  • Don't force your opinion or recommendations; just offer your support.
  • Avoid blaming or shaming your loved one, and focus instead on your concern.
  • Recognize that treatment is more complicated than simply starting to eat regularly again.
  • Assure your loved one that you will always be there to listen and offer support.
