Made my jaw drop..
EDNOS (or Eating Disorders Not otherwise Specified) make up 70% of eating disorder cases. Eating Disorders aren’t very pretty or easy to put in a box. Not everyone is anorexic or bulimic, yet they suffer from raging eating disorders. Some dangerous examples of EDNOS I’ve seen are: Rumination, someone vomits up a very small amount of food and chews on it for hours. This would be an example of EDNOS. An overweight woman goes on a 200-300 calorie per day diet and loses 50 pounds in a months time. She is still overweight and still has her period, so she cannot be diagnosed as anorexic. She would be an example of someone with EDNOS. Most cases of EDNOS should be treated in the same way as current treatment for anorexia and bulimia.
