Transgender-identified youth are disproportionately likely to suffer from eating disorders.
In a review  of 20 publications, significantly higher rates of eating disorder symptoms were documented in transgender youth (aged between 8 and 25).
Another study  corroborated this connection, noting that data, while scarce, suggest “an overrepresentation of eating pathology among adolescents with GD [gender dysphoria] or transgender identity.”
