autistic spectrum & anorexia

Post 1


It has long been known that many of those on the autistic spectrum engage in unusual eating behaviours, and more recent research has found that those with anorexia nervosa have a higher prevalence of autistic spectrum disorders such as Asperger’s syndrome than is found in the general population.

I suppose what needs to be addressed is the causal relationship.
Were most people with anorexia already on the autistic spectrum or can malnutrition cause or exaggerate autistic spectrum symptoms that would not have been significant before the malnutrition.
