Other Eating Disorders

A wide range of other eating disorders, including pica, rumination disorder, ARFID, and OSFED, can also cause serious mental and physical health concerns.

A spectrum of other feeding and eating disorders exists outside of the most common specified conditions. Generally, the need for clinical intervention and treatment rests on four factors: the presence of any other medical or psychiatric conditions, the severity of the condition, the degree of disruption to daily life, and the acuity of the distress the individual is experiencing. In addition to anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, other eating disorders that an individual may suffer from include:

Pica
Rumination Disorder
Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder
Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder
Unspecified Feeding or Eating Disorder
If you sense that a loved one is showing signs of a feeding or eating disorder, it is recommended that you consult a primary physician or treatment professional for advice on next steps.

In a lifetime study on eating disorders, 15% of women participating had met criteria for an eating disorder by mid-life. – The NCBI
