[Diagnostic criteria for eating disorders : What will DSM-5 feature?]
This article describes the suggested modifications of the diagnostic criteria for eating disorders for the DSM-5. The DSM-5 abstains from setting a specific numerical standard for weight for AN and reduces the required minimum frequency for BN and binge eating disorder (BED) to once a week over the last 3 months. This will likely reduce the number of cases in the EDNOS category. In addition, the DSM-5 provides brief descriptions of several conditions of potential clinical significance without providing detailed criteria in order to stimulate additional research.
