Yes, men can get eating disorders.
Eating disorders are not limited to a particular gender or age group and can affect anyone, regardless of their gender identity. Although historically eating disorders have been thought of as a problem primarily affecting young women, recent studies suggest that the number of men with eating disorders is on the rise.
It is estimated that one in three people with eating disorders is male. Some common eating disorders in men include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and muscle dysmorphia. If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, it’s important to seek help from a mental health professional as soon as possible.
