They may include types of disordered eating that includes inflexible eating patterns and behaviors and is not diagnosable under the DSM

2. What’s the difference between eating disorders and disordered eating?

An eating disorder is a clinical diagnosis, whereas disordered eating are abnormal eating patterns that do not meet the criteria for an eating disorder diagnosis. One factor that we must consider is that those with an eating disorder may not demonstrate patterns of disordered eating however; those with disordered eating if left untreated, may lead to a diagnosable eating disorder. You can think of getting treatment for disordered eating or patterns of disordered eating behaviors as a preventive measure. is
