Transgenders More Likely to Need Teen Eating Disorder Recovery


It has always been a stereotype that young women are more likely to be susceptible to an eating disorder than any other group of people. Research is now telling us that teen eating disorder recovery is needed amongst transgender youth more than ever before. Researchers find that transgender youth turn to eating disorders due to confusion and anxiety linked with gender dysphoria. Founder of the Eating Disorder Resource Center, Dr. Judith Brisman, explains how gender dysphoria is not kind on transgender people. Many people who deal with gender dysphoria were assigned a sex at birth that they are not at all comfortable with as they grow into their bodies.
