OBJECTIVE A large and well-characterized sample of individuals with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa from the Price Foundation collaborative genetics study was used to determine the frequency of anxiety disorders and to understand how anxiety disorders are related to state of eating disorder illness and age at onset. METHOD Ninety-seven individuals with anorexia nervosa, 282 with bulimia nervosa, and 293 with anorexia nervosa and bulimia were given the Structured Clinical Interview for…

Trait anxiety in children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa
TLDR
Trait anxiety was significantly increased at the time of admission and social phobia was present in a large proportion of the patients and specific eating disorder psychopathology as measured by the EDI was significantly associated with trait anxiety.
Does the frequency of anxiety and depressive disorders differ between diagnostic subtypes of anorexia nervosa and bulimia?
TLDR
The study confirmed that OCD is more frequent in AN than in AN, even after controlling for confounding factors, and several confounding factors may explain previous conflicting results on the frequency of anxiety and depressive disorders in ED.
Psychiatric Comorbidities among Female Adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa
TLDR
Clinicians should be alerted to the particularly high rate of psychiatric comorbidities in adolescents suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, with two specific diagnoses differed across the two subtypes of AN.
Diagnosed Anxiety Disorders and the Risk of Subsequent Anorexia Nervosa: A Danish Population Register Study.
TLDR
Observations from the comprehensive Danish population registers support the notion that anxiety disorders and anorexia nervosa share etiological mechanisms and/or that anxiety represents one developmental pathway to anorexa nervosa.
Personality Assessment Inventory profiles of university students with eating disorders
TLDR
The PAI helps to understand the psychological factors associated with eating disorders and can be used to assist with assessment and continued investigation using the PAI in an eating disordered population is supported.
Effectiveness of Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Treating Eating Disorders
TLDR
Given the prevalence and associated consequences of eating disorders, a prudent task for counseling professionals is to evaluate what interventions are associated with desirable treatment outcomes and one target outcome for many counselors treating individuals diagnosed with eating disorders is the frequency of eating disorder episodes.
Comorbid psychiatric disorders in female adolescents with first-onset anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
Prevalence rates of comorbid psychiatric disorders and suicidal ideation are considerably lower among adolescents with anorexia nervosa compared with adults, suggesting an early and careful assessment, along with adequate treatment of the eating disorder, might prevent the development of severe psychiatricComorbidities.
The Physiology of Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa
TLDR
It is estimated that only about 33 % of AN patients and 6 % of BN are receiving proper treatment for their illnesses, and Successful treatment of EDs should be managed with a team-based approach including the physician, psychologist, and registered dietitian.
Enhanced cognitive behavior therapy: A single treatment for all eating disorders
TLDR
In a comprehensive review, Jacobi, Hayward, de Zwaan, Kraemer, and Agras (2004) concluded that low self-esteem and elevated weight and shape concern substantially increase the risk of an ED.

A controlled family study of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa: psychiatric disorders in first-degree relatives and effects of proband comorbidity.
TLDR
Relatives of anorexic and bulimic probands had increased risk of clinically subthreshold forms of an eating disorder, major depressive disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessional personality traits may be a specific familial risk factor for anorexia nervosa.
Eating disorders and antecedent anxiety disorders: a controlled study
TLDR
The data suggest that certain anxiety disorders are non‐specific risk factors for later affective and eating disorders, and others may represent more specific antecedent risk factors.
Perfectionism in anorexia nervosa: variation by clinical subtype, obsessionality, and pathological eating behavior.
TLDR
Data show that perfectionism is a robust, discriminating characteristic of anorexia nervosa and is likely to be one of a cluster of phenotypic trait variables associated with a genetic diathesis for this illness.
Relationship of depression, anxiety, and obsessionality to state of illness in anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
It is suggested that malnutrition intensifies the severity of depression, anxiety, and obsessionality in anorexia nervosa, and the fact that mild to moderate symptoms persisted after long-term weight restoration raises the possibility that such behaviors are related to the pathogenesis of this illness.
Anorexia nervosa and anorexic-like syndromes in a population-based female twin sample.
TLDR
Both the pattern of comorbidity and the relationship to epidemiologic risk factors suggested an etiologic continuity between narrowly and broadly defined anorexic syndromes, which support the hypothesis of a spectrum of anoreXic-like Syndromes in women.
Genetic analysis of bulimia nervosa: methods and sample description.
TLDR
Clinical data indicate that although there are a large number of individuals with BN disorders, a range of eating pathology is represented in the sample, allowing for the examination of several different phenotypes in molecular genetic analyses.
Obsessions and compulsions in anorexia nervosa subtypes.
TLDR
Some common phenotype characteristics shared by most anorexia nervosa and OCD patients suggest these disorders may share common brain behavioral pathways, but the lack of complete overlap indicates they most likely have different loci of pathology within those pathways.
Premorbid onset of psychopathology in long-term recovered anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
The early and common onset of Childhood anxiety disorders in a substantial percentage of anorexics raises the possibility that childhood anxiety disorders herald the first behavioral expression of a biologic vulnerability in some subjects who develop anorexia nervosa.
Temperament, Character, and Personality Disorder in Bulimia Nervosa
TLDR
Low self-directedness scores were associated with a markedly increased probability of a personality disorder, and the presence of personality disorder was associated with greater depressive symptoms, worse global functioning, laxative use, greater body dissatisfaction, higher harm avoidance, and lower self- directedness.
