“…Among normal weight participants, 38.8% with a BMI of ≤24.9 had an EAT‐26 score of ≥20. Previous studies have also found a high prevalence of disordered eating attitudes based on EAT‐26 scores among female undergraduates with a normal BMI (Alberton, Dal‐Bó, Piovezan, & Silva, ). The present findings have also indicated that women with an underweight status had greater than twice the odds of exhibiting restrictive oral control behaviors associated with anorexia nervosa.…”

“…No Brasil, os estudos epidemiológicos se restringem a populações específicas (ALBERTON et al, 2013;ALVES et al, 2008; PETROSKI; PELEGRINI; GLANER, 2012; VALE; KERR; BOSI, 2011), não possibilitando uma inferência da prevalência desses quadros na população geral. De qualquer forma, a partir de nossa prática clínica em um serviço de referência para o Estado de Minas Gerais, podemos testemunhar a existência de uma demanda contínua e numerosa de tratamento nos diversos serviços públicos de saúde do Estado, proveniente, sobretudo, de pacientes jovens dos mais variados grupos socioeconômicos com sintomas alimentares.…”
