Subthreshold eating disorders can include a wide variety of disordered eating behaviors, but most often look like anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa, but without the full degree of symptoms. However, research has shown that these disorders can be just as devastating as a full-syndrome eating disorder like anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa in terms of medical problems, strained relationships with family members and friends, greater feelings of depression and lower self-esteem. Most people diagnosed with an eating disorder actually fall into this category. Treatment recommendations parallel those for the full syndrome eating disorders.
