The high cost of eating disorders
Diana Shaw's parents spent £25,000 helping her cope with her anorexia and
NHS waiting lists were too lengthy and her family worried that Diana's weight
problems were too serious to wait so they got her into a private clinic.
Diana's weight had dropped from 10.7 stone to eight stone and her binge eating
started to take its toll on her body.
She was obsessed with her body image and convinced she was "too fat".
