Eating Disorders Awareness Week: What You Need to Know About Eating Disorders and ADHD
Eating disorders are serious mental health conditions that often go undetected and untreated. In fact, it's been estimated that roughly 28 million Americans will struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime, but only 20-57% of these individuals will receive the care they need. Given the comorbidity with ADHD, it's important for families, caregivers and individuals with ADHD to be well informed about eating disorders and how they may present in neurodiverse individuals. This is particularly true for diagnoses that are relatively new or understudied like atypical anorexia nervosa and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID).
