The Eating Disorders Genetics Initiative (EDGI) is the largest-ever genome-wide association study for eating disorders. EDGI will create the blueprint to identify the causes of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. The Eating Disorders Genetics Initiative (EDGI) is an international research study designed to understand how your genes can influence your risk for developing an eating disorder.
You can help by introducing the study to your patients. The goal is 6000 participants. See the 5 simple steps (below) for participation. There is also a link below to download a flyer for your waiting room, post on your website or blog, or send to clients electronically,
We know that one treatment doesn’t fit all eating disorders. EDGI will guide us toward a personalized medicine approach including tailored treatment and recovery plans. EDGI will allow us to understand how both genes and environment influence risk for these disorders. The purpose of EDGI is to learn more about how genes influence risk for bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and anorexia nervosa. By introducing this important study to your patients, you can help advance understanding of the genetics of eating disorders and contribute to a future with better treatments!
