Teens with insomnia and other health problems, including eating and anxiety
• 47 percent of students with persistent problems reported anxiety, compared with 12 percent of non reporters.
• 31 percent reported depression, compared with 5 percent of non reporters.
• 77 percent were unhappy with their weight and 46 percent with their appearance. This was much higher than the 8 percent and 18 percent reported by students without eating problems.
The researchers also found higher levels of psychological problems, insomnia, and health complaints in students who only reported eating problems in one of the two surveys. More from http://psychcentral.com/news/2008/06/05/teen-eating-problems-and-anxiety/2412.html
