There is some evidence to suggest that tongue-tie may be associated with eating disorders, particularly in children.
For example, a study of children with tongue-tie found that they had significantly higher scores on measures of eating disorder symptoms compared to children without tongue-tie.
In addition, difficulties with eating and swallowing associated with tongue-tie may contribute to eating disorder behaviors.
However, it is important to note that tongue-tie and eating disorders are two separate issues, and more research is needed to understand the nature of this relationship.
If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder or has been diagnosed with tongue-tie, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional for a proper evaluation and treatment.
Eating disorders can be serious and can have serious health consequences if left untreated, so it is important to seek help as soon as possible.
