If you are concerned about teenage eating disorder and think your child might have one, you already know how good your child is at hiding their behavior. This in fact can be one of the biggest warning flags to look for when trying to decide if your child has an eating disorder. Look a bit farther, you may want to look for signs of malnutrition, which can be hair loss, infrequent or absent menstrual periods in girls, difficulty in concentrating and dizzy spells or lack of energy.
If your child shows an obsession with food, this too can indicate that your child has an eating disorder, as can increased isolation, frequent lying and compulsive exercising among many other symptoms.
