I would say yes because Ben grows up to lose weight and that is a source of contention and fear for him with Pennywise, that he will always be the fact kid. This doesn’t fit the typical stereotype of body dysmorphia, but his shame and being shamed by pennywise may cause issues for some.

Ep 90 deals pretty heavily with people who hate their bodies and are exercising obsessively to change them, as well as turning that theme up in body-horror contexts. A few other episodes dip into the same theme for a few lines

This is much of what drives the Elric brothers to get their bodies back for the entire anime, after one losing an arm and leg, and the other losing his whole body — that his soul was attached to a suit of armor. Comparing to real life, clearly those who are severely injured or amputated have trouble accepting their bodies.

One character's backstory has strong parallels with dysphoria, but this backstory (found in diaries) is completely optional to read.

(Spoilers!!) There seems to be a theme where all the humans that are evil and abusive are overweight, such as Todd Williams and the man who was killed by his android. While this could probably make someone with Body Dysmorphia uncomfortable (it sure does make me uncomfortable), there is not any characters with the disorder.

A character creates an alternate species persona for herself and is distressed by not fitting the expectations of her actual species, due to the fact she identifies with a term for trans women and shares a body with a male character this may be interpreted as expression of her dysphoria. Another character also discusses dysphoria in the epilogue and detransitions in one route of it.
