Do alcoholics suffer a high risk of developing eating disorders

Question:

Do alcoholics suffer a high risk of developing eating disorders due to the overall decreased health of their organs?

Answer:

I am not aware that alcoholics have a higher risk of eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia, however, they are taxing their systems heavily by using alcohol and this leads to decreased health. Alcohol puts a large burden on the liver to break it down and detoxify plus it causes us to usually make poor food choices, get inadequate sleep and make poor lifestyle choices as well. So alcoholics across the board I feel are at a lower level of health however this does not necessarily translate into a higher incidence of eating disorders although it can coexist.
