Eating disorders and personality disorders

Previous research on the links between eating disorders and personality disorders has varied greatly in its findings although there is a general understanding that personality disorders are common among eating-disorder patients. A study of 545 eating-disorder patients in Denmark found that 29.5% of them had one or more personality disorders - less than the researchers were expecting to find. Personality disorders, in particular borderline personality disorder, were more common among people with bulimia.
