Video Transcription

So there’s a number of different sorts of eating disorder. There is anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. There’s also eating disorders not otherwise specified, and they’re in just a grey area between clinical diagnosis and normal eating as well. Anorexia nervosa would be a severe restriction on the amount someone eats. It may have a binge/purge subtype underneath it. Bulimia is when people spend time on a binge/purge cycle and the purging can happen in a number of ways. Binge eating disorder focuses specifically on the bingeing. And then eating disorders not otherwise specified could have a combination of all of those together.
