Are there simple instruments to recognize eating disorders?

Answer:

The diagnosis of an eating disorder is very often missed by mental health professionals. Here is a suggestion of a few relevant questions that should be answered. This little screening tool is called SCOFF-Questions:
  • Do you make yourself Sick because you feel uncomfortably full?
  • Do you worry you have lost Control over how much you eat?
  • Have you recently lost more than One stone (14 pounds) in a three-month period?
  • Do you believe yourself to be Fat when others say you are too thin?
  • Would you say that Food dominates your life?

NOTE: Score one point for every "yes"; a score of two or more is a likely indication of anorexia nervosa or bulimia. .

Here is an online screening option provided by the great webpage "Something fishy". You can print the results of this little questionnaire and discuss it with your doctor or therapist!
