Other Disorders

Technically speaking, there are only a small number of 'official' eating disorders. OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders) provides a generic place to cover a variety of disordered eating behaviours that do not conform to the diagnostic criteria for Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa, or Binge Eating Disorder.

However, there are a number of other conditions in which disordered eating, or body image and weight play a significant part.

They are 'labels' that are heard increasingly in the media, and the following offers some explanation.

They are similar in that they possess a symptomatic component in common with symptoms existing with an 'eating disorder'.
