About Eating Disorders

Co-Occurring Disorders

Eating disorders often occur alongside a spectrum of other psychiatric and developmental disorders. While this can complicate treatment, understanding these relationships is critical to sustainable recovery.

Common Co-Occurring Disorders

Certain eating disorders occur more often and can lead to a dual diagnosis with certain other psychiatric and developmental disorders. In general, comorbidities include:

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Major depressive disorder (MDD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar I and II disorders
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Cognitive disorders
