Common causes of eating disorders


Medical experts suggest that a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental, and psychological factors may contribute to the development of eating disorders. Research indicates that an imbalance in serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain, could also play a role. Furthermore, societal pressures are recognized as influential factors in the onset of eating disorders. Understanding these contributing factors allows for targeted preventive measures and early intervention, which can improve outcomes for affected individuals by providing timely support and treatment. #EatingDisorderAwarenessWeek
