Treatment for Other Eating Disorders

Some patients experience eating disorders that just don’t fit neatly into diagnoses like anorexia nervosa, bulimia, or binge eating disorder. They may have diabulimia (with a dual diagnosis of diabetes as well as an eating disorder), an avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, or what used to be called an eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS), which is now diagnosed as other specified feeding and eating disorder. Some examples include atypical anorexia nervosa (where despite significant weight loss, the patient is not below the normal range), bulimia nervosa of low frequency and/or limited duration, binge eating disorder of low frequency and/or limited duration, purging disorder, and night eating syndrome.

While their symptoms may not fit other classic diagnostic criteria, historically, people with these issues actually comprise approximately half of the patients seeking eating disorder treatment at centers like EDCare. What’s really important to know is that patients with other specified feeding and eating disorder usually need the same level of treatment and support as patients with more formal diagnoses such as anorexia and bulimia. Without proper treatment, in fact, many will eventually develop full diagnostic criteria for anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder.
