Given the low power of Dr. Thiel and colleagues’ chosen statistical procedures to find meaningful differences between the OCD and non-OCD eating disorder patients in their group, we have looked instead at the trends in their data. The trends suggest an opposite conclusion to that offered by Dr. Thiel and colleagues. For instance, 54% of the patients without OCD had recovered from their eating disorder at 30 months, but only 45% of the patients with OCD were free of symptoms. Likewise, 37% of non-OCD patients were bingeing at 30 months, compared with 52% of OCD patients. A total of 48% of non-OCD patients were vomiting, compared with 66% of OCD patients. A total of 65% of non-OCD patients were married or living with a partner, compared with only 48% of OCD patients.
