Bulimia Comorbidity

I hope the chart above is readable, because I think it's rather intriguing. 

After reading about comorbidity (having two disorders at once) of depression and bulimia, I got curious and researched comorbidity of psychiatric disorders with eating disorders.
The table below is what I found, and I think it’s pretty interesting.
Apparently depression is the most common comorbid disorder among ED patients, which I suppose makes sense, although dysthymia might also make sense, even though the scores on that one are low. Alcohol dependence and substance abuse is also common in bulmia, and I’m thankful I don’t have that, because that would make life a hell of a lot worse.
