Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Eating Disorders Screener   #120600

Definition:

A questionnaire to assess eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, which is a refusal to maintain normal weight, and bulimia nervosa, which is characterized by episodes of binge eating followed by vomiting, use of laxatives, or fasting (APA, 2000).

Purpose:

This measure is used to screen an individual for the presence of an eating disorder. Eating disorders are more prevalent among women in industrialized nations and range from 0.5% for anorexia nervosa to 3.0% for bulimia nervosa. Eating disorders are accompanied by unhealthy attitudes about body shape and weight and co-occur with a number of other disorders, including depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. Nutritional deficiencies associated with eating disorders can lead to renal failure, cardiovascular disease, and menstrual problems (APA, 2000).
