Accuse someone of eating disorder?. It think that is a poor choice of words
Of course, if they put it in accusatory terms, there would be a backlash.

There are ways to raise the issue, using the word "concerns", rather than expression "eating disorder", which would put Ana automatically on the defensive, and less than likely to entertain any other question on the matter.
If they could start engaging her like below, she is more likely answer.
