Please note: I am not a medical professional, and I strongly recommend seeing a professional if you are concerned. This quiz is not meant to replace or complement medical evaluation; it is for your use and self-awareness only.
0-15% There is little evidence of an eating disorder. However, if you or others are concerned, please seek a full medical evalutation.
15-25% There is little evidence of an eating disorder. However, some of your answers may be indicative of a medical problem of some sort; you may want to seek a full medical evalutation.
25-35% There is little evidence of an eating disorder. However, it seems that you may be concerned over your weight; please consider speaking to a doctor or counsellor.
35-45% There may be some signs of an eating disorder. Some of your answers indicate a high pre-occupation with food and/or weight. Medical consultation is strongly encouraged.
45-55% There is significant evidence that you may be developing or in the midst of an eating disorder. Whether or not symptoms are present, you appear to be at high risk for becoming symptomatic. Medical evaluation and/or counselling is highly recommended.
55-65% There is strong evidence of an eating disorder. Because this test emphasizes symptoms of anorexia, bulimic tendencies may not be accurately reflected. Although your score may not fall in the higher ranges, chances are that you may have a full-blown eating disorder. Please seek a full medical evalutation as soon as possible; your health may be "at risk."
65-75% There is strong evidence of an eating disorder. You may be suffering from full-blown bulimia, or you may be in the midst of anorexia. Your answers indicate a high risk for further medical and psychological complications. Please seek a full medical evalutation immediately; counselling is also highly recommended. Your health may be significantly at risk.
Over 75% There is excessive evidence of an eating disorder. It is extremely likely that you have a full-blown eating disorder -- either anorexia, bulimia, or both. Please seek a full medical evalutation IMMEDIATELY. A score in this range indicates DANGER. Your health may be in jeopardy, and psychological functioning may be diminishing.
This test is scored on a 100% scale. The higher your score, the more likely it is that you may have an eating disorder. No matter what your score, please seek medical evaluation if you or others are concerned! YOUR HEALTH MAY BE AT RISK, whether or not your score indicates this.
As stated above, this test has an emphasis on symptoms of anorexia. Therefore, you may be bulimic, yet score low on this test. BULIMIA IS JUST AS DANGEROUS AS ANOREXIA. Please do not rely on this test!
I am still at the "evaluative" stage of development for this test; the score range descriptions are based on my experimental answer combinations.
If you have any opinions regarding this test -- regarding accuracy, types of questions, scores, etc. -- please email me with as many details as possible. This would be extremely helpful for me as I develop the score analyses!
