[Correspondence] The neglect of eating disorders – Authors’ reply

We thank Katrin Giel and colleagues for their comments on our paper.1 The authors make a strong case, that eating disorders are associated with a considerable burden that is often under-recognised, and that these conditions should have been addressed in our paper. Our methodology was constrained in our selection of disorders by the criterion that the disorder must be among the three leading causes of the global burden of disease2 in that category (ie, adult mental disorders in the case of eating disorders) and eating disorders did not meet this requirement.
