According to researchers, Autistics are at a 4-9 to 22.9% higher risk of developing an eating disorder.  Sensitivity to food textures, digestive issues, and interoception play a significant role that impacts Autistic Adults experiencing eating disorders. Tas Kronby joins me to talk about what eating disorders can affect Autistics, the challenges with finding doctors who understand the dual diagnosis of Autism and an eating disorder, and what we can do to help others understand how eating impacts the lives of Autistics.
