OBJECTIVE: To determine sex differences in the prevalence and impact of specific eating disorder features on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). METHOD: A general population sample of men (n = 1,479) and women (n = 1,555) completed interviews that assessed HRQoL (Medical Outcomes Study Short Form, SF-36), and current regular occurrence of binge eating, extreme dietary restriction, purging, and overevaluation of weight or shape. RESULTS: Men constituted a substantial minority (23-41%) of participants reporting eating disorder features. Objective binge eating had a greater impact on mental health impairment in men versus women, whereas the overevaluation of weight or shape had a greater impact on general and mental health impairment in women compared with men. DISCUSSION: Eating disorder features that impact on HRQoL are now common in men; however, the impact of specific features may differ between sexes. © 2013 by Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
