Good Luck.
A health [grouped / group] in Japan is worried about people with eating disorders. The Japan Society for Eating Disorders (JSED) said that most people who eat too much or too [small / little] do not receive [no / any] support. The JSED said hundreds of thousands [by / of] people have health problems because of [being / been] overweight or underweight. It said few of these people receive any medical [helping / help] . The president of JSED, Dr. Toshio Ishikawa, said: "Hundreds of thousands of people are [suffer / suffering] in silence. There are very few services [available / availability] to help people." He added: "It's often too late by the [time / timely] the patient is seen in a hospital. Their condition is very severe. Sometimes they are even close [for / to] death."

The Japanese government said it was [difficulty / difficult] to find out how many people are suffering [with / as] eating disorders. It said many women were too [embarrassing / embarrassed] to go to a doctor about eating problems. Some women do not want to [admit / remit] they have a problem. Takanobu Matsuzaki of Japan's Ministry of Health said the government was [trying / trial] to publish more information about eating disorders. He said: "We want to set up [local / locally] systems of support where their illness can be picked [down / up] early, so people can be helped sooner." Statistics show that in 2014, only 10,000 people in Japan [got / get] treatment for eating disorders. This compared to 725,000 people [in / on] the United Kingdom, which has almost half [the / a] population of Japan.
