Is It Overeating or Binge Eating? 6 Questions to Ask

I often hear the question: “Is overeating the same as binge eating?” This is an understandable question, given that “overeating” and “binging” are terms that you hear frequently in the media or in casual day-to-day conversations. It’s common to use these terms interchangeably, however mental health professionals define them differently. Overeating is a behavior that everyone does from time to time. Binge eating is quite different. People who engage in frequent binge eating can struggle with isolation, depression and low self-worth. Additionally, their pattern of eating may have a negative effect on relationships, sleep or productivity at work. People who engage in binge eating regularly could meet criteria for binge eating disorder. Binge eating disorder currently impacts an estimated 2.8% of American adults, more than double the cases of anorexia and bulimia combined. It can lead to a variety of psychological effects (anxiety, depression, alcohol or drug use) and medical complications (high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease) in both men and women. To help you determine if your eating is actually binge eating (and not just overeating), here are some questions to ask: Do you consume amounts of food that you or others might describe as excessive? Everyone overeats once in a while. For example, there are many cultural events where food is central to the celebration and large amounts or servings are frequently consumed b...

Authors: Gentile E, Ricci K, Delussi M, Brighina F, de Tommaso M Abstract Previous studies indicated changes of motor cortex excitability in fibromyalgia (FM) patients and the positive results of transcranial stimulation techniques. The present study aimed to explore the metabolism of motor cortex in FM patients, in resting state and during slow and fast finger tapping, using functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), an optical method which detects in real time the metabolism changes in the cortical tissue. We studied 24 FM patients and 24 healthy subjects. We found a significant slowness of motor speed in FM ...

The indications for cryoablation in pediatric patients has been slowly growing over the last few years. Vascular anomalies and solid tumors are being treated with this modality. However, cryoablation can be associated with local complications. This is of high relevance in children due to smaller body surface area, more compact anatomy and less subcutaneous fat. Additionally, these patients have lower tolerance to pain and inflammation. It is critical to understand these factors when using cryoablation to treat pediatric patients.

Pediatric hypertension (HTN) is commonly due to secondary causes such as renal parenchymal disease or renal artery stenosis (RAS). But, the impact of accessory renal arteries on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone feedback system and potential for causing HTN is not known. First proposed by Glodny et al in 2001, parenchyma supplied by ‘accessory’ vessels may have lower blood pressure (BP) than the dominant renal parenchyma triggering renin secretion. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of accessory renal artery embolization (ARAE) in children presenting with suspected renal artery HTN.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) standards were updated in 2011 to recommend end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) monitoring during moderate sedation, which is now common practice in IR. Studies show EtCO2 monitoring improves detection of respiratory depression and hypoxemia. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of respiratory depression and hypoxemia from oversedation during IR procedures before and after implementation of EtCO2 monitoring.

Knee OA is a common cause of pain and disability, with many patients relying on chronic pain medications and/or joint injections. These options unfortunately result in short-term relief, or have associated increased morbidity, and knee replacement surgery may ultimately be performed. Researchers have postulated that synovial neovascularity develops as a result of inflammation and subsequently leads to knee pain. While previous overseas reports of success with GAE have been published, we present our final results from a prospective US multicenter clinical trial.

There are no reported descriptions of motor nerve cryoablation in humans. As a result, physicians faced with inadvertent motor nerve cryoablation during palliative or therapeutic procedures for established indications are forced to rely on preclinical studies to manage patient expectations. (1, 2) In addition, potential applications of motor nerve cryoablation, such as for management of spasticity and pain, have been avoided because of the unknown prognosis following cryoneurolysis of mixed or motor nerves.

Ultrasound image-guided procedures (USGP) are common and often cause mild to moderate pain both during the procedure and during lidocaine injection. This 110 participant randomized clinical trial evaluated the effectiveness of vapocoolant topical anesthetic application prior to lidocaine injection at reducing pain during the USGP.
