The Eating Disorders Examination in adolescent males with anorexia nervosa: how does it compare to adolescent females?

The Eating Disorders Examination in adolescent males with anorexia nervosa: how does it compare to adolescent females?

International Journal of Eating Disorders 45(1): 110-114

The study aimed to explore the Eating Disorder Examination (EDE) for adolescent males with eating disorders (EDs) compared with adolescent females with EDs. Data were collected from 48 males and matched on percent median body weight (MBW) and age to 48 females at two sites. Adolescent males with anorexia nervosa-type presentation scored significantly lower than matched females on Shape Concern, Weight Concern, and Global score. They also scored lower on a number of individual items. The EDE has clinical utility with adolescent males with anorexic-type presentation although males' scoring ranges are consistently lower than those from adolescent females with similar clinical presentations. Males scored significantly lower on a number of items representing core symptoms such as desire to lose weight. More research is needed to gain a better understanding of the experience of adolescent males with EDs, particularly in relation to the nature of shape concern.
