Eating disorders are mostly associated with young women in their teens and 20s, but they’re increasingly common among older women. A 2006 survey of women in their 60s found that 90 percent felt moderately or very fat, though most were of normal weight, and 60 percent felt dissatisfied with their bodies.

The physical risks of an eating disorder are high for anyone, but they’re especially pronounced for older women, whose bodies are more vulnerable and weak. If you believe that you or anyone you know—no matter how old—may be suffering from an eating disorder, call the National Eating Disorders Association helpline at 1-800-931-2237.
