Question

My friend' s weight

A friend of mine who is only 14 is extremely overweight. I would say she' s about 70 kg. I' m really worried about her. She never eats anything at school and starves herself, but then she goes home and binge eats. I feel uncomfortable discussing this with her because she could get offended. Any suggestions?

Sounds like she may well have an Eating Disorder like Bilimia. Is it possible to discuss this with her parents, indicating that you are worried, and asking whether she might be assessed by a suitable shrink or paediatrician ?
