Question by  minoty (27)

Should I be worried about weight loss in my teen?

She wasn't fat to start.

You should only worry about losing weight if your health is at risk. If you are having self esteem problems I suggest you talk to somebody because eating disorders are a serious problem. They can really harm you physically and emotionally. Teen years are the best make the most of them.

Yes, teenagers are very image driven and tend to have eating disorders. Try to pay attention to if your teen is eating nutritious meals or skipping them. Are they going to the bathroom and vomiting after eating. Talk with your teen calmly and without any assumptions. Communicate openly and obtain advice from your doctor.
