EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified)

Articles, Videos and treatment options for EDNOS

When people exhibit behaviors in the spectrum of disordered eating but do not meet all the criteria for Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia, they are given a diagnosis of an Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS). Over one-half to two-thirds of people diagnosed with an eating disorder fall into the category of EDNOS. More people are diagnosed with EDNOS than Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia combined.

You can find an overview of EDNOS here. For the latest articles and videos on the subject, please browse below.
