About This Project

Purging Disorder is a little understood eating disorder characterized by purging (e.g., vomiting) in normal weight individuals who do not experience binge eating. Though it has existed for at least 30 years, it was only added to the DSM in 2013. This study will describe remission rates and identify which factors are related to recovery, informing treatment development and diagnostic schemes. We only study (and treat) what we name.
