Sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of eating disorder patients treated in the specialized residential settings in Belgium.

CONCLUSIONS: Epidemiology of ED patients in treatment in Flanders (Belgium) seems to resemble worldwide findings. The long duration of illness, the common evolution towards chronicity and the early work impairment underline the severe personal and societal impact of ED and call to the need for early detection and treatment of these patients. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V: cross-sectional descriptive study. PMID: 32080821 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: The burden of disease (BD) increased by 1.6% from 1990 to 2015. The main causes were migraine, CVD, and NE. ADD and NSC doubled the DALY in this period. These diseases represent a significant cause of disability attributable to the increase in the life expectancy of our population among other factors. Priority actions should be taken to prevent and treat these causes.RESUMEN Introducci ón: Los indicadores de carga de la enfermedad evalúan el impacto que producen las enfermedades en una población.

When I blogged last month, I thought surely that May would be an improvement over April. I was wrong. Now, with 100k deaths from COVID-19, and after several days of protests across the country in response to the death of George Floyd, I can’t possibly imagine what the summer will be like. I watched two … Continue reading "Justice &George Floyd"

What is the public health burden of eating disorders? The burden is a product of two factors: 1) the prevalence of these disorders and 2) the degree of disability (including morbidity and mortality) caused by these disorders. In this issue of Biological Psychiatry, Udo and Grilo (1) offer new numbers for this “burden equation.” Using data from the 2012 to 2013 National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC-III), they have attempted to estimate the prevalence and correlates, including self-reported disability, of anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and binge-eating disorder.

Abstract Although empirical evidence identifies dietary restraint as a transdiagnostic eating disorder maintaining mechanism, the distinctiveness and significance of the different behavioural and cognitive components of dietary restraint are poorly understood. The present study examined the relative associations of the purportedly distinct dietary restraint components (intention to restrict, delayed eating, food avoidance, and diet rules) with measures of psychological distress (depression, anxiety, and stress), disability, and core eating disorder symptoms (overvaluation and binge eating) in patients with anorexi...
