Long-term disability benefits for workers with anorexia nervosa

Workers with anorexia nervosa may be entitled to long-term disability benefits if their condition is so severe that it has hindered their ability to work.

The lack of adequate food intake in individuals with anorexia may cause them to experience severe damage to internal organs like the heart and gastrointestinal system. Anorexic men may experience testosterone deficiency, while anorexic women may experience very abnormal menstrual periods. An anorexic individual’s nutritional deficiencies can also cause psychological disorders like drug abuse and depression.

Our Indiana attorneys at the Hankey Law Office P.C. understand that anorexia can be a very debilitating condition. If anorexia nervosa has adversely affected your ability to work, you may want to look into applying for long-term disability benefits. Our legal team may be able to assist you with this process.
