People with Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS) have some but not all of the symptoms of anorexia or bulimia.
People with Binge Eating Disorder binge uncontrollably on large amounts of food-sometimes thousands of calories at a time-but do not purge the calories after they are consumed.
Obesity indicates that a person has more body fat than is healthy. With too much body fat, the risk of certain health problems may increase, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, stroke, and sleep apnea. Some people who are obese dislike their bodies and experience prejudice or mistreatment by others because of their weight. Obesity is usually a long-term disease with a strong genetic basis, running in families. It is also influenced by culture, environment, personal behavior, the use of certain medications, and medical problems.
Body Mass Index (BMI), which measures weight in relation to height, is the best measure of obesity. BMI of 30 or more in adults indicates obesity. BMI between 25 and 30 in adults indicates overweight.
