An eating disorder is a complex mental health condition which can affect anyone, no matter what their age, gender, ethnicity or background. There is no single cause of an eating disorder and symptoms can vary between people and type of eating disorder.
Disordered eating can take many different forms. Many people will be diagnosed with “other specified feeding or eating disorder” (OSFED), which means that their symptoms don’t exactly match what doctors check for to diagnose binge eating disorder, anorexia, or bulimia, but doesn’t mean that it’s not still very serious.
