3 Funny Eating Disorder That We Thought Never Existed

Simple changes in our habits and lifestyle that we think are a part of our moods swings or after-effects of an event can be a psychiatric disorder. But, before I move on to discuss, I want to emphasize on the need of consulting a professional psychiatrist if you think you have any of the disorders that I will list.

The funny eating disorders listed here are for informational purpose only and should in no way be considered above what a medical professional diagnosis.

#1. Binge Eating Disorder

Binge Eating Disorder

We all have cravings and episodes where we want to eat a lot too frequently. But, if this has been a part of your habits lately and you are concerned about why the sudden urge. Then, you should visit a healthcare professional. Yes, my friends, there is something called as Binge eating disorder which is characterized by the urge of eating a lot very often.

If you think you are matching this criterion, then there are other symptoms to watch out for. These include irritability, depressions, mood swings, etc. If you still fit the category, then this is a treatable disorder and psychiatric pharmaceutical companies manufacture medicines that can help you.

#2. Pica Disorder

Pica Disorder

Have you ever come across someone who is fond of eating things that are not meant to be eaten like soil, chalk, etc.? Or have you ever had this kind of persistent urge yourself. If that is the case, then the concerned person might be suffering from Pica disorder.

Depending on the kind of material you want to eat, this disorder is also further categorized Coprophagy, Geophagy, Tricophagia, Hyalophagia, and Urophagia. This is a rare disorder and therefore involvement of psychiatric pharmaceutical companies is not required. This usually subsides on its own but consulting a professional is the best things because it can be life threatening depending on what you crave to eat.

#3. Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia Nervosa disorder

This is averse to the above two disorder and in this Anorexia Nervosa eating disorder, you would have the tendency to avoid eating so that you do not gain weight. In this disorder, a person is apprehensive of gaining weight and tries to stay away from food but the result is that the patient is underweight and malnourished. This again can be a life-threatening disorder because of the nourishment factor.

The most cases diagnosed so far are between the age of 14 to 60. But, this is treatable disorder and a trained medical professional can diagnose and treat this order without much hassle.

While you think that these can be self-diagnosed, remember that a medical professional is the right person to do it. Consulting a medical practitioner is the right thing to do before starting any medication or treatment for these disorders. The best source of information on mental disorders is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

There are a lot of other freely available resources that provide information on these list of eating disorders but these should not be used for anything other than getting educated.
