“I cannot emphasise enough the importance of detection and early intervention for eating disorders. Delays in receiving diagnosis and treatment are sadly common and also associated with poorer outcomes and great suffering,” said Dr Jacinta Tan, associate professor of psychiatry at Swansea University.

The research team, from Swansea University Medical School, examined anonymised electronic health records from GPs and hospital admissions in Wales. Nearly 15,558 people in Wales were diagnosed as having eating disorders between 1990 and 2017.
