Who Can Develop An Eating DisorderEating disorders can affect people of all genders, ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
However, certain factors may increase the risk of developing an eating disorder, such as having a family history of eating disorders, experiencing trauma or abuse, or having certain personality traits, such as perfectionism or impulsivity.

Additionally, certain cultural and societal pressures, such as the emphasis on thinness in Western societies, may also contribute to the development of eating disorders.
