ConclusionsThe WMSQ may be a useful tool in future research exploring the key weight management skills associated with successful weight loss before and after bariatric surgery.
ConclusionThis meta-analysis of 25 validation studies demonstrates that the SCOFF is a simple and useful screening tool for young women at risk for AN and BN. However, there is not enough evidence to support utilizing the SCOFF for screening for the range of DSM-5 eating disorders in primary care and community-based settings. Further examination of the validity of the SCOFF or development of a new screening tool, or multiple tools, to screen for the range of DSM-5 eating disorders heterogenous populations is warranted.Trial RegistrationThis study is registered online with PROSPERO (CRD42018089906).
People who are homosexual, bisexual, or unsure of their sexual orientation have both a higher risk and a higher rate of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder than people who are heterosexual, astudy in theInternational Journal of Eating Disorders has found. Although prior research suggests that members of sexual minorities have a higher risk of eating disorder symptoms than heterosexuals, this study is believed to be the first to use data from a large number of people to determine how common eating disorders are among sexual minority members.Rebecca C. Kamody, Ph.D., of Yale ...
Abstract E-Therapies for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder Abstract. Eating disorders can often be treated with psychotherapy, but mostly due to a lack of trained clinicians, the majority of the persons concerned do not receive any treatment. In recent years, internet-based psychotherapy (e-therapy) was proposed and tested in several pilot projects as a novel possibility to offer a larger number of places on a treatment program with a constant number of available clinicians. Recent results are promising, but before an implementation into standard care can take place, more detailed knowled...
This study examined self-weighing behaviors and correlates in patients with BED. Hypotheses: (1) women would weigh more frequently than men, (2)> weekly weighers would have higher restraint scores than weekly weighers reported significantly higher restraint (2.0Â±1.2 versus 1.6Â±1.3; t(421) = 3.1, p = .02). (3) No significant gender*self-weighing interaction on restraint (p = .99). (4) Self-weighing is inversely correlated with BMI (rho = -0.20; p
ConclusionPeople with self-reported DM had a higher prevalence of subjective binge eating, a lower prevalence of overvaluation and there were no significant effects of age or gender. Furthermore, participants with self-reported DM and comorbid ED or DEB had impairments of both mental and physical HRQoL. Assessing an individual ’s sense of control over eating along with other DEB is likely important for identification of these mental health problems.
CONCLUSIONS: EDs were significantly associated with lower HSUVs compared to people without such disorders. This study, therefore, provides new insights into the burden of EDs. The derived HSUVs can also be used to populate future economic models. PMID: 31670627 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Publication date: Available online 26 October 2019Source: Journal of Psychiatric ResearchAuthor(s): Kathryn E. Smith, Tyler B. Mason, Lauren M. Schaefer, Adrienne Juarascio, Robert Dvorak, Noam Weinbach, Ross D. Crosby, Stephen A. WonderlichAbstractBinge eating presents in the context of several eating disorders (EDs) and has been shown to be associated with negative affectivity and inhibitory control deficits. While considerable ecological momentary assessment (EMA) work in EDs has demonstrated the importance of intra-individual variability in affect in predicting binge episodes, no research has considered how fluctuation...
CONCLUSIONS: Subthreshold and threshold PTSD are associated with binge eating symptoms in both men and women. Similar to drugs and alcohol, binge eating may be used as a strategy to alleviate distressing symptoms of PTSD. PMID: 31644842 [PubMed - in process]
Eating disorders are characterized by clinical disturbances in body image and eating behavior resulting in significant physical and psychological impairment. Disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder are more prevalent in women and can result in serious long-term health consequences such as heart disease, kidney failure, and increased mortality.
