Types of Eating Disorders
The most common eating disorders are Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa, although the rates of Binge Eating Disorder and EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) are increasing. Due to the complexity of Anorexia Nervosa, I do not treat this illness as it requires a multidisciplinary team approach.
Symptoms of Eating Disorders
You are likely to experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Eating large quantities of food that feels out of control
- Weight loss, weight gain or weight fluctuation
- Inability to think rationally or concentrate
- Constant and excessive dieting
- Frequent excuses not to eat
- Dizziness and fatigue
- Anxiety or depression
- Sensitivity to cold
- Social withdrawal
- Obsessive rituals
- Eating in secret
An eating disorder can wreak havoc on your life but there’s hope. You can recover from an eating disorder with evidence-based professional support.
