Atypical Anorexia Nervosa

Atypical eating disorders, also known as Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS), affect approximately half of all people with an eating disorder.

An eating disorder is called atypical if they do not fit exactly into the diagnostic categories. For example a person may have most of the symptoms of anorexia or bulimia but not all; or they may have symptoms of both conditions; or they may move from one condition to another. Atypical eating disorders are considered to be just as serious as anorexia or bulimia as they can cause the same level of distress and impact on people’s lives.
