Scoff Test

The Scoff Test is an eating disorders screening test that can help determine whether you might have the symptoms of anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. Use the results to decide if you need to see a doctor or other mental health professional to further discuss diagnosis and treatment of anorexia or bulimia.

Also, please keep in mind that while this eating disorders test has proved effective in screening for anorexia or bulimia in women, in 12% of cases it detected an eating disorder where the subject did not really have one.
