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 & II Disorders
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Cognitive Disorders
