AbstractRecent FindingsEating disorders (ED) affect energy intake modifying body fat depots. Prior evidence suggests that binge eating disorder (BED) and bulimia nervosa (BN) could increase the risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D), while anorexia nervosa (AN) could reduce it.Purpose of ReviewA systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted to evaluate if ED are risk factors for T2D.SummaryTen studies were selected out of 1057 screened. Meta-analysis of six studies with T2D as outcome is reported. Among cross-sectional studies, both BED (OR 3.69, 95% CI [1.12 –12.12]) and BN (OR 3.45 [1.92–6.1]) increased the risk...

I have worked with hundreds of women who struggle with disordered eating and poor body image. Some clients obsessively track calories or Weight Watcher’s points. Some try to restrict their food intake all day then order large quantities of food to binge on at night. Some purge after meals or excessively exercise. Others restrict entire food groups. Some have tried every fad diet. Some say mean things to themselves when they look in the mirror, in hopes that this will motivate change. Some have found a community — in Weight Watchers or Overeaters Anonymous — to hold them accountable or to reinforce their g...

Patients with binge eating disorder (BED) who were randomized to lisdexamfetamine dimesylate after initial response to the drug in an open‐label trial had a significantly lower risk of relapse than patients randomized to placebo, a study has found. Most adverse effects from lisdexamfetamine were mild to moderate in severity and were in line with the drug's safety profile from prior BED studies and from trials in treating attention‐deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the researchers reported.

Abstract Recent findings suggest that altered rest-activity circadian rhythms (RARs) are associated with a compromised health status. RARs abnormalities have been observed also in several pathological conditions, such as cardiovascular, neurological, and cancer diseases. Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder, with a prevalence of 3.5% in women and 2% in men. BED and its associate obesity and motor inactivity could induce RARs disruption and have negative consequences on health-related quality of life. However, the circadian RARs and sleep behavior in patients with BED has been so far asses...

This study examined independent and interactive associations of negative affect, dietary restraint, and facets of impulsivity with binge eating. A diverse sample of 566 undergraduate women completed online questionnaires of study variables. Results revealed a three-way interaction of negative affect, dietary restraint, and attentional impulsivity in relation to binge eating. Women who were high on each of these three variables reported the greatest levels of binge eating. In addition, a two-way interaction was found for negative affect and nonplanning impulsivity in relation to binge eating, such that nonplanning impulsivi...
