Other eating disorders

If you have been diagnosed with an 'other specified feeding and eating disorder' (called 'OSFED' for short) it means you don't have all the typical symptoms of any of the main types of eating disorder. It could be because you have a mixture of signs or symptoms of different eating disorders. It does not mean your condition is less serious.

If you have OSFED, you should be offered the treatments recommended here for the type of eating disorder your symptoms are most similar to. Have a look at the separate treatment sections and ask your doctor for more information.
