Eating disorders     

There are three eating disorders which have been identified and defined:

However, many people meet some but not all the criteria for these conditions and  they do not fully encompass the range of disordered eating behaviours which exist so an additional category, Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS), has been introduced. Food behaviour is the symptom, but eating disorders are to do with feelings which are difficult and scary to express and donít go away.
