Accompanied by personality disorders -the answer is a, accompanied by personality disorders. the eating disorder anorexia nervosa is accompanied by personality disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, perfectionism, symmetry, and exactness. these patients also might demonstrate harm avoidance. anorexia often begins during adolescence. criteria for the diagnosis include the following: weight loss or failure to make expected weight gain during a period of growth, leading to body weight lower than normal; fear of becoming overweight; and absence of at least three expected menstrual cycles. anorexia is actually rare; bulimia is more common and is characterized by binge eating, persistent overconcern of body shape, self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, fasting, and strict dieting.(sadock, 2002-2020; tintinalli, 1822-1823)
