In brief: Absolutely

Eating disorders often distract and cover up other emotional issues that one is experiencing.
As a result, these issues remain unresolved so you can't live as happily or productively as you would like. In addition, the longer you have an active eating disorder, the harder it becomes to let it go. This can result in secrecy, difficult relationships, frustration, fear, and depression.
