How do you know if you have an eating disorder?

Do you have severe disturbances in eating behavior or a disturbance in perception of body shape and weight? You may have compensatory behaviours such as self-induced vomiting, a misuse of laxatives, diuretics or other medications or fasting when not culturally appropriate. These are all indications of an eating disorder.
