Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified

Different combinations of negative eating behaviours can be specified eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and bingeing or due to the complexities of eating disorders and their symptoms an Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS).

This is where an individual may have some but not all the symptoms of a specified eating disorder such as anorexic behaviours but remaining within a normal weight range, bulimic behaviours but the frequency of binges is reduced, using compensatory behaviours after small amounts of food for example vomiting or repeatedly chewing large amounts of food but not swallowing.

Whatever your eating behaviours and reasons for these behaviours, you can recover. Nightingale Hospital can help you take that vital step to regain a healthy and happy life. Please call us about eating disorder treatment.
