How many girls who start dieting at age 12-13 end up with eating disorders?

I know a girl who has been dieting since she was 13 and still is (she’s probably around 15 now). What are the chances of her getting an eating disorder? I’ve heard that like 86% of girls who diet at that age end up with one, is that true? What statistics do you have/know? I really would like to warn her parents, especially since they see nothing wrong with her behavior. I’m not sure if she’s throwing up in a bathroom or anything like that, but she definately is watching what she is eating, eating foods marked “low carb”, keeping track of how many pounds she has lost, and exercises for the benefit of weight loss. Also looks like she could use a vitamin if you know what I mean..
Thanks to all who help.
But what percentage of those 82% that diet end up with eating disorders?

I know alot of girls this year that went to my school, who have been hospitalized because of eating disorders. More than half… are fine, others are still in there. A recent polls says that teenage girls are extremely sensitive about weight, and deside to throw it all up or take fitness pills or even smoke crack…. not working! The polls’ numbers of teenage girls who have tried dieting was 82% positive.
