I think my friend has an eating disorder, she looks as if she has lost alot of weight,according to another friend of ours she weighs 8 stone and she is 5`7".i have expressed my concernes but she insists its just a diet to lose a bit of weight,if i was to write to her doctor would this make them aware of her situation, would they give her an appointment.would this be acceptable.
There is no way to determine how a doctor's office will respond to a written inquiry of this sort. You are always free to provide information, but it is a one-way street. They cannot respond in kind.
For more information on talking with your friend, the links below provide some helpful information. Other than that, there is no more information that NetWellness can offer. Best wishes to you and your friend.
