Adele Clay is seriously ill with hypothermia in hospital after tests revealed her heart rate had dropped dangerously low. The 25-year-old from Stockport, Greater Manchester, has anorexia and bulimia.
Her parents Yvonne and Rick are terrified she will die before she gets the help she needs.
Yvonne claims Adele, who has battled her eating disorders since she was 12-years-old, has been rejected by a number of hospitals for treatment, at first because she wasn’t ill enough, and now because she is too unwell.
According to the Manchester Evening News.
Yvonne, 47, said:
“There were times when she would abscond, but then we sent her to a secure clinic in London.
“She was there for 12 months, and actually came back quite well. But over the last three years she has relapsed time and time again and has become really ill“We keep asking for help but no one is giving it.
