What is OSFED?
OSFED: Symptoms, Treatment, and Recovery. OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder) is a confusing term for the general public, and even for many medical professionals who are not familiar with eating disorders. OSFED was previously called EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified). If you have an eating disorder that is classified as OSFED, it means that your symptoms are a complex mix, but no less serious or life affecting than for someone who has been diagnosed with anorexia.
