Eating Disorders in Paraguayan Adolescents.
Eating disorders, once thought to be exclusively a disorder of the more affluent Western countries, are now spreading around the world. Despite the wealth of information on the prevalence of eating
Eating disorders
The estimates show an important difference between the risk in females and in males and suggests that the risk is incremented above all in the last few years of infancy and the first years of adolescence, when these boys and girls are more vulnerable to socio-cultural influences and do not yet have defined image and “behaviour models”.
[Prevalence of eating disorders in early adolescent students].
The ICD-10 point prevalence rates of ED population in Spanish preteen students is similar to those reported for other developed countries, and the prevalence of subclinical ED is substantially higher than that of full-syndrome.
Abnormal eating attitudes in Mexican female students: A study of prevalence and sociodemographicclinical associated factors
A profile of highly AEA was built based on sociodemographic data and a solid instrument validated in Mexican population, which can be employed as a screening and secondary prevention tool to design public health programs.

It was shown that age is a risk factor when someone is already diagnosed with an eating disorder but, in the general population, increasing age reduces the likelihood of being afflicted by eating disorders.
Cognition and the risk of eating disorders in Spanish adolescents: the AVENA and AFINOS studies
No association between cognitive performance and ED risk was found in adolescents, while academic achievement was associated with ED risk, especially in non-overweight girls, and the non-cognitive traits that accompany academic achievement could influence the likelihood of developing ED in these girls.
Low Socioeconomic Status Predicts Abnormal Eating Attitudes in Latin American Female Adolescents
A higher than expected proportion of Ecuadorians are at risk for eating disorders, especially among lower socioeconomic groups, and the presently unvalidated Spanish version of the EAT-26 should be considered for validation as a primary screening tool in Latin America.


Onset of adolescent eating disorders: population based cohort study over 3 years
Dieting is the most important predictor of new eating disorders in an adolescent cohort and controlling weight by exercise rather than diet restriction seems to carry less risk of development of eating disorders.

Prevalence and incidence of eating disorders in a suburban area
There has been no previous epidemiological study on anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia (BU) where non‐medical care givers have also been included in the case‐finding procedure and there seems to be no clear social class grouping.
Impact of urbanization on detection rates of eating disorders.
The incidence rates of eating disorders--as defined by detection rates in primary care--are higher than previously reported, and urbanization seems to be a risk factor for bulimia nervosa but not for anorexia nervosa.
Epidemiology and natural course of eating disorders in young women from adolescence to young adulthood.
FS- and PS-ED are associated with substantial comorbidity, treatment seeking, impaired functioning, and risk for psychopathology in young adulthood, and both groups differed significantly from a no-disorder comparison group on most outcome measures.

Sixty percent of the anorexia nervosa patients, but only 30% of the bulimia patients, were admitted to hospital; this is an important difference in regard to estimation of occurrence from registers, and the prevalence was estimated at 1:780 (patient years/total population years), in the high‐risk population: females 15–19 years of age.
The Eating Attitudes Test: an index of the symptoms of anorexia nervosa.
The EAT was validated using 2 groups of female anorexia nervosa patients and female control subjects and total EAT score was significantly correlated with criterion group membership, suggesting a high level of concurrent validity.
Mortality in eating disorders: a descriptive study.
Anorexia nervosa is associated with a substantial risk of death and suicide, and features correlated with fatal outcome are longer duration of illness, binging and purging, comorbid substance abuse, and comorbrid affective disorders.
Prevalence, incidence and prospective risk factors for eating disorders
Self-esteem, body concern, coping, and perceived social support may be considered as risk factors for later development of ED among young adult women.
Bulimia nervosa in Rochester, Minnesota from 1980 to 1990.
The incidence of bulimia nervosa was determined by identifying persons residing in the community of Rochester, Minnesota, who had the disorder initially diagnosed during the 11-year period from 1980 to 1990 by identifying cases by screening 777 medical records.
