The aim of this study is to create awareness about anorexia among adolescents who are experiencing eating disorder and it’s prevalence in our society.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
This is a questionnaire based survey which was taken up by 100 participants through a link created by survey planet. All participants were adolescents between the age group of 12-19 years. The results were statistically analysed.
Since this disorder is common in adolescents they have serious complications among their socioeconomic development. Most of them feel unsecured of their physical appearance. They love to maintain their body but in a very serious manner by damaging their normal weight.
Affected people usually do over exercise to keep them fit and feel anxiety even if they miss workout for one day. Since it is more seen in adolescents their parents must be aware of their child’s natural habits and body health.In today’s society many teenagers/ adolescents are pressurised of having good looking appearance . Hence these young minds are diverted easily towards this trap of eating disorder without knowing their severe impairments. It’s necessary to spread awareness to sustain a healthy future generation.
