What is an Eating Disorder?

An eating disorder is a psychological condition that affects dietary behaviors, exercise, and body image and leads to an unhealthy relationship with food.

An eating disorder is remarked by persistent changes in dietary patterns and consumption that then impairs the physical, social, and psychological health of the person. It also greatly jeopardizes their well-being. In some cases, an eating disorder can be fatal as well. While anyone can develop an eating disorder, young women and girls are more at risk. According to Vogue, 1 in every 4 female students in UAE affect by an eating disorder.

What are the Different Types of Eating Disorders?

There are different eating disorder types that affect people of all age groups. The main categories include:

What is Anorexia Nervosa?

Anorexia nervosa is a condition remarked by starvation and extreme fixation on body size. People see themselves to be overweight, even when that is not the case. Consequently, they cut back on their food consumption and exercise a lot, alongside keeping a careful eye on their weight.

People with this disorder generally tend to be underweight, dangerously so. Hence, the mortality rate for anorexia nervosa runs high.

Symptoms of anorexia nervosa include:

What is Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder?

In avoidant restrictive eating disorders, people do not eat food because of a lack of interest in food, fear of food, and an extremely picky nature. The site of food, color, texture, temperature, and smell may cause people to turn away from it. AFRID causes severe nutritional deficiencies in patients, which can also be fatal.

Unlike anorexia and bulimia, the lack of dietary intake does have to do with body image issues. The situation is direr than picky eating. Also, in ARFID, access to food is not the reason for the lack of food intake.

Signs of avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder include:

What is a Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge eating disorder causes people to consume large amounts of food in a small time. The eating episodes are often on account of loss of impulse control, and people then give in to their desires.

People experience extreme guilt and stress after binge eating, however, they do not take any steps to undo the food consumed. Consequently, binge eating disorder causes obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular problems, etc.

Signs of binge eating disorder include:

What is Bulimia Nervosa?

People with bulimia nervosa alternate between restrictive eating, and consumption of calorie-intensive food with intense shame afterward, causing them to take steps to avoid calorie absorption.

Essentially, people with bulimia eat too much of the forbidden foods and then feel extreme guilt. They then either use laxatives or coercive methods to vomit. Some might also fast or compulsively exercise to make up for it.

Signs of bulimia nervosa include:

What is Pica?

In pica disorder, people eat things that are not considered food per se. These include ice, soil, dirt, cloth, etc. Often, pica is associated with other health problems like autism, development issues, etc. As people can consume dangerous things in this eating disorder, therefore, they are at considerable risk for ingestion of toxic materials.

Signs of pica include:

What is Rumination Disorder?

In rumination disorder, people regurgitate the food they have previously chewed and swallowed. They then either re-swallow the food or spit it out.

Rumination disorder can occur during infancy, childhood, or even adulthood. Since it limits the consumption of food, hence, it can lead to weight loss and nutritional deficiency. The consequent problems can even be fatal as well.

Hallmarks of rumination disorder include:

What is Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (UFED)?

OSFED refers to an eating disorder that does not fit any of the above categories. Often, people in this category experience rapid weight loss, but their BMI is still above the limit set for patients with anorexia nervosa.

What are The Symptoms of an Eating Disorder?

The specific signs of an eating disorder are contingent on the type of the disorder, but there are some general eating disorder signs and symptoms.

Physical symptoms of eating disorders include:

Emotional, behavioral, and psychological signs of an eating disorder include:

What are the Early Signs of an Eating Disorder?

What Eating Disorder is Commonly Misunderstood as Picky Eating?

AFRID eating disorder is commonly misunderstood as picky eating. While AFRID may present so, however, its underlying cause is psychological. People think they are going to die if they consume the food, so the relationship is based on trauma and fear, unlike the case of picky eating.

What Causes an Eating Disorder?
