When an eating disorder co-occurs with anxiety disorders, the way in which treatment may be implemented can be very different. Individuals suffering from eating disorders clearly present with preoccupations about weight and food, and show ritualistic behavior to control the weight and appearance. Psychiatric disorders such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and especially OCD have been found to coexist with eating disorders. Thus, it is necessary to examine how OCD and anxiety disorders in general have been found to interact with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder.
