Have you ever heard of the term EDNOS? While many are familiar with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, only a few have heard about EDNOS or Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. Like the two mentioned eating disorders, individuals with EDNOS tend to binge, purge, restrict, or over-exercise. However, they fail to meet the full criteria of the following eating disorders.

As a result, millions of people suffering from EDNOS, mostly women, remain undiagnosed and untreated. Dr. Douglas Bunnel, a clinical psychologist said:

“It’s still a misperception out there that these are relatively benign sort of disorders like diets gone bad. These are life-threatening serious illnesses with the highest mortality rate than any psychiatric diagnosis.”

It’s terrifying to know that eating disorders such as EDNOS can take millions of lives every year if untreated. This is why it’s important to educate ourselves about this terrible illness.

The moving stories of Taylor and Ali, two women battling EDNOS, will help shed light on an eating disorder most people have never heard of.
