A health group said people who are overweight or underweight get no help in Japan. It said these people "suffer in silence". There are almost no services to help them. The group said many people are very ill when they get to a hospital. It added that: "Sometimes they are even close to death."

Japan's Ministry of Health do not know how many people have eating disorders. It is trying to give people more information about eating disorders. It also wants people who are ill to get help sooner. In 2014, only 10,000 people in Japan got help for eating disorders. Many overweight or underweight women do not go to the doctor.
