The eating problems in autism spectrum disorders may increase the risk for developing clinically significant eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa. Autistic traits must be considered in the treatment of the eating disorders and seem to be predictors for a poor psychosocial outcome after recovery from the eating disorder per se. (Less)
