Rumination Disorder Symptoms and DSM-IV Diagnosis

Rumination Disorder Symptoms and Diagnosis Overview:

adhdRumination Disorder symptoms and diagnostic criteria follow below. While some of these Rumination Disorder  symptoms may be recognized by family, teachers, legal and medical professionals,  and others, only  properly trained mental health professionals (psychologists, psychiatrists, professional counselors etc.) can or should even attempt to make a mental health diagnosis. Many additional factors are considered in addition to the Rumination Disorder  symptoms in making proper diagnosis, including frequently medical and psychological testing considerations. This information on  Rumination Disorder symptoms and diagnostic criteria are for information purposes only and should never replace the judgement and comprehensive assessment of a trained mental health clinician. 


Diagnostic criteria for 307.53 Rumination Disorder

A. Repeated regurgitation and rechewing of food for a period of at least 1 month following a period of normal functioning.

B. The behavior is not due to an associated gastrointestinal or other general medical condition (e.g.. esophageal reflux).

C. The behavior does not occur exclusively during the course of Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia Nervosa. If the symptoms occur exclusively during the course of Mental Retardation or a Pervasive Developmental Disorder, they are sufficiently severe to warrant independent clinical attention.
