Association Between Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Bulimia Nervosa in Outpatients With Eating Disorders
Association Between Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Bulimia Nervosa in Outpatients With Eating Disorders

To understand whether a relationship exists between eating disorders and ADHD, we seek to clarify the prevalence of ADHD in individuals with eating disorders. To this end, we will estimate the prevalence of ADHD, and other neuropsychiatric disorders, in outpatients with history of an eating disorder diagnosis. Secondarily, we will identify patterns of cognitive deficits in outpatients with history of an eating disorder diagnosis. We will also examine whether ADHD in this population is associated with functional and familial correlates associated with ADHD.
