OSFED Treatment

Offering comprehensive and compassionate OSFED treatment in Southern California

What is Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder (OSFED)?

Although the diagnostic criteria for eating disorders has been revised in recent years, eating disorders can present themselves in diverse ways and do not always fit into one well-defined category. Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED) is an eating disorder that either does not fit all the criteria for one of the other specific eating disorders or is a mixture of more than one eating disorder. Research has found that OSFED is just as severe in presentation and potential harm for individuals as other eating disorders, which has allowed treatment providers to provide a diagnosis for individuals struggling with significant eating disorder symptoms and insurance companies to cover treatment for OSFED. The warning signs and symptoms are the same as for other eating disorders.

We are here to help.

Examples of OSFED

Provided below are some common examples of OSFED; however, everyone’s experience is unique. If you’re asking yourself, “do I have OSFED?” and you’re concerned about your eating/exercise habits as well as your thoughts and emotions concerning food, and body image, we urge you to consult an eating disorder expert because you may have OSFED eating disorder.

The commonality in all these conditions is the serious emotional and psychological impact they can have on one’s work, school, relationships, and overall life. Treatment from a multidisciplinary team at an eating disorder center such as Shoreline can help alleviate the impact of OSFED and improve one’s quality of life.
