There are a number of types of disordered eating that don’t quite fit into neat categories but can cause significant distress or impairment.
Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders (OSFED) diagnoses include:
- Atypical anorexia nervosa (weight is not below normal)
- Bulimia nervosa (with less frequent behaviours)
- Binge-eating disorder (with less frequent occurrences)
- Purging disorder (purging without binge eating)
- Night eating syndrome (excessive nighttime food consumption)
Unspecified Feeding or Eating Disorders (UFED)
This is a catch-all category that will be recognised by varying forms of behaviour and thinking patterns around eating, which can cause significant problems in day to day life and tend to be entered around self-worth based on shape and weight.
