Gender Talk Series:  Providing Affirming Care to the Transgender/Non-Binary Community,

Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) individuals are at elevated risk for disordered eating. For some individuals, this may be due to gender affirmation needs: aligning one’s physical features with body ideals consistent with their gender identity. 

Gender affirming care is critically important; without it, TGD individuals experience worse mental and physical health outcomes. Mounting evidence suggests that treating TGDs with eating disorders without also focusing on gender affirming treatment will be ineffective for many.
