Nutrition Q & A

Is Anorexia the Only Kind of Eating Disorder?

Anorexia is just one category of eating disorders. Eating disorders are medical illnesses that involve extreme emotions, attitudes and behaviors focusing on weight and food issues. These issues can significantly impact the health status of affected individuals and, in some cases, may be potentially life-threatening.

The three categories of eating disorders are anorexia, bulimia and eating disorders not otherwise specified. This last group includes binge-eating disorder and night-eating syndrome. Individuals who may have any of these eating disorders should be evaluated and treated by a team of professionals that can address their individual medical, emotional and nutritional requirements.
