An eating disorder that is characterized by a cycle of binge eating (BULIMIA or bingeing) followed by inappropriate acts (purging) to avert weight gain. Purging methods often include self-induced VOMITING, use of LAXATIVES or DIURETICS, excessive exercise, and FASTING.
An eating disorder that is characterized by the lack or loss of APPETITE, known as ANOREXIA. Other features include excess fear of becoming OVERWEIGHT; BODY IMAGE disturbance; significant WEIGHT LOSS; refusal to maintain minimal normal weight; and AMENORRHEA. This disorder occurs most frequently in adolescent females. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)
Eating an excess amount of food in a short period of time, as seen in the disorder of BULIMIA NERVOSA. It is caused by an abnormal craving for food, or insatiable hunger also known as "ox hunger".
A group of disorders characterized by physiological and psychological disturbances in appetite or food intake.
A disorder associated with three or more of the following: eating until feeling uncomfortably full; eating large amounts of food when not physically hungry; eating much more rapidly than normal; eating alone due to embarrassment; feeling of disgust, DEPRESSION, or guilt after overeating. Criteria includes occurrence on average, at least 2 days a week for 6 months. The binge eating is not associated with the regular use of inappropriate compensatory behavior (i.e. purging, excessive exercise, etc.) and does not co-occur exclusively with BULIMIA NERVOSA or ANOREXIA NERVOSA. (From DSM-IV, 1994)

Psychopharmacotherapy of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder. (1/225)

Pharmacotherapy for anorexia nervosa is considered to be of limited efficacy. However, many studies suffer methodological limitations, and the utility of newer drugs in the treatment of anorexia has not been examined yet. Although there have been more fruitful investigations on the efficacy of medication in the management of bulimia nervosa, there are still many unresolved issues regarding the optimal management of partial remission during the acute treatment phase and the intensity and duration of pharmacotherapy to achieve optimal prophylaxis. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) control the binge urges in binge-eating disorder, but more trials are required to investigate the utility of SSRIs and other agents in maintenance treatment. We review the current status of psychopharmacotherapy for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder and evaluate the merits of newer agents in the treatment of these disorders.  (+info)

Knowledge of oral and physical manifestations of anorexia and bulimia nervosa among dentists and dental hygienists. (2/225)

Despite the crucial role oral health care providers can have in the early identification of eating disorders and the referral and case management of patients with these disorders, little is known concerning their knowledge of oral complications of these disorders. The purpose of this study was to determine the knowledge among dentists and dental hygienists concerning the oral and physical manifestations of eating disorders. Employing a randomized cross-sectional study, data were collected from 576 dentists and dental hygienists randomly selected from the American Dental Association and the American Dental Hygienists' Association. Results indicated low scores concerning knowledge of oral cues, physical cues of anorexia, and physical cues of bulimia among study participants. More dental hygienists than dentists correctly identified oral manifestations of eating disorders (p=.001) and physical cues of anorexia (p=.010) and bulimia (p=.002). As the first health professional to identify oral symptoms of eating disorders, the most important task of the dental care provider when identifying oro-dental signs of eating disorders is to ensure that the patient receives treatment. Implications for education include the addition of conceptual, procedural, and skill-based curricula objectives addressing etiologic assessment and patient communication--thus increasing behavioral capacity for delivery of restorative care and patient referral.  (+info)

The Eating Disorders Section of the Development and Well-Being Assessment (DAWBA): development and validation. (3/225)

OBJECTIVE: Development and validation of the Eating Disorders Section of the Development and Well-Being Assessment (DAWBA). It is a package of questionnaires, interviews and evaluation techniques, designed to generate DSM-IV and ICD-10 based diagnoses of anorexia, bulimia nervosa and the respective partial syndromes in epidemiological studies, in subjects who are 7 to 17 years old. The parents are interviewed in all cases, as are young people aged 11 or more. METHODS: 174 girls, divided into three groups, were assessed with the Eating Disorders Section of the Development and Well-Being Assessment: 48 with eating disorders, 55 clinical controls (with depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder or gastrointestinal disease) and 71 community controls. The sensitivity, specificity and predictive values of the assessment were investigated by comparing the Development and Well-Being Assessment diagnoses with independent psychiatric diagnoses. The test-retest reliability was investigated by reapplying the measure on 55 subjects after 2 or 3 weeks. RESULTS: For the detection of any DSM-IV and ICD-10 eating disorder, the final Development and Well-Being Assessment diagnosis had a sensitivity of 100%, specificity of 94%, positive predictive value of 88%, and a negative predictive value of 100%; there was 95% agreement between the initial and repeat diagnoses (a kappa of 0.81). CONCLUSION: The Eating Disorders Section of the Development and Well-Being Assessment has suitable psychometric properties for use in clinical and epidemiological studies.  (+info)

Early experiences and their relationship to maternal eating disorder symptoms, both lifetime and during pregnancy. (4/225)

BACKGROUND: There is some evidence that early sexual abuse is an aetiological factor for eating disorder. However, there is sparse information from large-scale, non-clinical studies. AIMS: This study was designed to explore which early experiences, recalled during pregnancy, were associated with both lifetime and antenatal eating disorder symptoms in a community sample. METHOD: Univariate and multivariate analyses were conducted of data from questionnaires administered during pregnancy to a community sample of pregnant women. RESULTS: Recall of parental mental health problems and of early unwanted sexual experiences were independently associated with both lifetime eating problems, laxative use and vomiting during pregnancy, and marked concern during pregnancy over shape and weight. CONCLUSIONS: There are public health implications for these results. Eating disorders in mothers represent a risk for child development. It may be important to enquire during pregnancy about a history of eating problems and to provide the opportunity for early experiences to be discussed.  (+info)

Linkage analysis of anorexia and bulimia nervosa cohorts using selected behavioral phenotypes as quantitative traits or covariates. (5/225)

To increase the likelihood of finding genetic variation conferring liability to eating disorders, we measured over 100 attributes thought to be related to liability to eating disorders on affected individuals from multiplex families and two cohorts: one recruited through a proband with anorexia nervosa (AN; AN cohort); the other recruited through a proband with bulimia nervosa (BN; BN cohort). By a multilayer decision process based on expert evaluation and statistical analysis, six traits were selected for linkage analysis (1): obsessionality (OBS), age at menarche (MENAR), and anxiety (ANX) for quantitative trait locus (QTL) linkage analysis; and lifetime minimum body mass index (BMI), concern over mistakes (CM), and food-related obsessions (OBF) for covariate-based linkage analysis. The BN cohort produced the largest linkage signals: for QTL linkage analysis, four suggestive signals: (for MENAR, at 10p13; for ANX, at 1q31.1, 4q35.2, and 8q13.1); for covariate-based linkage analyses, both significant and suggestive linkages (for BMI, one significant [4q21.1] and three suggestive [3p23, 10p13, 5p15.3]; for CM, two significant [16p13.3, 14q21.1] and three suggestive [4p15.33, 8q11.23, 10p11.21]; and for OBF, one significant [14q21.1] and five suggestive [4p16.1, 10p13.1, 8q11.23, 16p13.3, 18p11.31]). Results from the AN cohort were far less compelling: for QTL linkage analysis, two suggestive signals (for OBS at 6q21 and for ANX at 9p21.3); for covariate-based linkage analysis, five suggestive signals (for BMI at 4q13.1, for CM at 11p11.2 and 17q25.1, and for OBF at 17q25.1 and 15q26.2). Overlap between the two cohorts was minimal for substantial linkage signals.  (+info)

Autoantibodies against neuropeptides are associated with psychological traits in eating disorders. (6/225)

Previously, we identified that a majority of patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN) as well as some control subjects display autoantibodies (autoAbs) reacting with alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) or adrenocorticotropic hormone, melanocortin peptides involved in appetite control and the stress response. In this work, we studied the relevance of such autoAbs to AN and BN. In addition to previously identified neuropeptide autoAbs, the current study revealed the presence of autoAbs reacting with oxytocin (OT) or vasopressin (VP) in both patients and controls. Analysis of serum levels of identified autoAbs showed an increase of IgM autoAbs against alpha-MSH, OT, and VP as well as of IgG autoAbs against VP in AN patients when compared with BN patients and controls. Further, we investigated whether levels of these autoAbs correlated with psychological traits characteristic for eating disorders. We found significantly altered correlations between alpha-MSH autoAb levels and the total Eating Disorder Inventory-2 score, as well as most of its subscale dimensions in AN and BN patients vs. controls. Remarkably, these correlations were opposite in AN vs. BN patients. In contrast, levels of autoAbs reacting with adrenocorticotropic hormone, OT, or VP had only few altered correlations with the Eating Disorder Inventory-2 subscale dimensions in AN and BN patients. Thus, our data reveal that core psychobehavioral abnormalities characteristic for eating disorders correlate with the levels of autoAbs against alpha-MSH, suggesting that AN and BN may be associated with autoAb-mediated dysfunctions of primarily the melanocortin system.  (+info)

Overeating among seriously overweight children seeking treatment: results of the children's eating disorder examination. (7/225)

OBJECTIVE: We sought to examine rates of eating disorder symptoms among seriously overweight children seeking treatment using the Eating Disorder Examination for Children (ChEDE) and to provide initial data about their association with treatment outcome. METHOD: Overweight children (N = 27) 8-13 years old were interviewed using the ChEDE before participating in a family-based behavioral treatment program. Height and weight were measured pretreatment, posttreatment, and approximately 8 months posttreatment. RESULTS: Fifteen percent of children reported subjective bulimic episodes (SBE). Weight loss did not differ for children with and without SBEs, but concerns about body shape were related to larger weight losses during treatment. CONCLUSION: A considerable minority of treatment-seeking overweight children report an episodic sense of loss of control over eating. Loss of control is related to other disordered eating attitudes and behaviors, but does not appear to affect treatment outcome. Future studies are needed to replicate these initial findings.  (+info)

An empirical comparison of atypical bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. (8/225)

The International Classification of Diseases, 10th edition (ICD-10) defines atypical bulimia nervosa (ABN) as an eating disorder that encompasses several different syndromes, including the DSM-IV binge eating disorder (BED). We investigated whether patients with BED can be differentiated clinically from patients with ABN who do not meet criteria for BED. Fifty-three obese patients were examined using the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV and the ICD-10 criteria for eating disorders. All volunteers completed the Binge Eating Scale (BES), the Beck Depression Inventory, and the Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90). Individuals fulfilling criteria for both ABN and BED (N = 18), ABN without BED (N = 16), and obese controls (N = 19) were compared and contrasted. Patients with ABN and BED and patients with ABN without BED displayed similar levels of binge eating severity according to the BES (31.05 +/- 7.7 and 30.05 +/- 5.5, respectively), which were significantly higher than those found in the obese controls (18.32 +/- 8.7; P < 0.001 and P < 0.001, respectively). When compared to patients with ABN and BED, patients with ABN without BED showed increased lifetime rates of agoraphobia (P = 0.02) and increased scores in the somatization (1.97 +/- 0.85 vs 1.02 +/- 0.68; P = 0.001), obsessive-compulsive (2.10 +/- 1.03 vs 1.22 +/- 0.88; P = 0.01), anxiety (1.70 +/- 0.82 vs 1.02 +/- 0.72; P = 0.02), anger (1.41 +/- 1.03 vs 0.59 +/- 0.54; P = 0.005) and psychoticism (1.49 +/- 0.93 vs 0.75 +/- 0.55; P = 0.01) dimensions of the SCL-90. The BED construct may represent a subgroup of ABN with less comorbities and associated symptoms.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the relative course and outcome of bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. METHODS: Two community-based cohorts were studied prospectively over a 5-year year period. One comprised 102 participants with bulimia nervosa and the other 48 participants with binge eating disorder (21% [9/42] of whom had comorbid obesity). All participants were female and aged between 16 and 35 years at recruitment. The assessments were at 15-month intervals and addressed eating disorder features, general psychiatric symptoms, and social functioning. RESULTS: Both cohorts showed marked initial improvement followed by gradual improvement thereafter. Between half and two thirds of the bulimia nervosa cohort had some form of eating disorder of clinical severity at each assessment point, although only a minority continued to meet diagnostic criteria for bulimia nervosa. Each year about a third remitted and a third relapsed. The outcome of the binge eating disorder cohort was better, with the

Initial Treatment Antidepressants are effective as one component of an initial treatment program for most bulimia nervosa patients [I], with SSRI treatment having the most evidence for efficacy and the fewest difficulties with adverse effects [I]. To date, fluoxetine is the best studied of these and is the only FDA-approved medication for bulimia nervosa. Sertraline is the only other SSRI that has been shown to be effective, as demonstrated in a small, randomized controlled trial. In the absence of therapists qualified to treat bulimia nervosa with CBT, fluoxetine is recommended as an initial treatment [I]. Dosages of SSRIs higher than those used for depression (e.g., fluoxetine 60 mg/day) are more effective in treating bulimic symptoms [I]. Evidence from a small open trial suggests fluoxetine may be useful for adolescents with bulimia [II].. Antidepressants may be helpful for patients with substantial concurrent symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessions, or certain impulse disorder symptoms ...

Negative evaluations of the own body, body shape, or body weight and the associated body dissatisfaction have a negative influence on quality of life and self-esteem and are one of the most important risk factors for the development of eating disorders. People with bulimia nervosa are seriously affected by this body dissatisfaction. Because their self-evaluation is largely determined by their body shape or weight, they strive for a perfect body. This disorder is mainly diagnosed in women. Body image disturbances are a core feature of bulimia nervosa; body dissatisfaction is however also common in women without eating disorders. Research shows that body-related fears can be decreased by the repetitive confrontation with the own body; however, in many cases body dissatisfaction is still high, even after body confrontation. For this reason, current psychotherapeutic interventions have to focus more on the mechanisms contributing to the maintenance of body dissatisfaction in bulimia nervosa. ...
This paper describes the treatment of a series of patients with bulimia nervosa who also had insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus. The aim was to discover what modifications to an established cognitive behavioral treatment for bulimia nervosa proved necessary to accommodate the presence of diabetes. Treatment of the patients proved more difficult than that of comparable nondiabetic patients. Possible reasons for the difficulties encountered are discussed, together with strategies for overcoming them. It is concluded that cognitive behavior therapy can be successfully modified for the treatment of such patients, although adjunctive psychological and physical treatment techniques are required in some instances. Treatment usually results in improvement in both eating habits and glycemic control, and is likely to reduce the risk of future diabetic complications. This paper describes the treatment of a series of patients with bulimia nervosa who also had insulin‐dependent diabetes mellitus. The aim was to

Media portrayals of an ideal body shape are widely considered to be a contributing factor to bulimia.[21] In a 1991 study by Weltzin, Hsu, Pollicle, and Kaye, it was stated that 19% of bulimics undereat, 37% of bulimics eat an average or normal amount of food, and 44% of bulimics overeat.[39] A survey of 15- to 18-year-old high school girls in Nadroga, Fiji, found the self-reported incidence of purging rose from 0% in 1995 (a few weeks after the introduction of television in the province) to 11.3% in 1998.[40] In addition, the suicide rate among people with bulimia nervosa is 7.5 times higher than in the general population.[41] When attempting to decipher the origin of bulimia nervosa in a cognitive context, Christopher Fairburn et al.s cognitive behavioral model is often considered the golden standard.[42] Fairburn et al.s model discusses the process in which an individual falls into the binge-purge cycle and thus develops bulimia. Fairburn et al. argue that extreme concern with weight and ...

The study is aimed at an attempt to evaluate the intensification of feeling of anger and coping strategies in Polish and French patients with bulimia nervosa. 30 Polish adolescent girls and 14 French adolescent girls suffering from bulimia nervosa were examined. The study methods included the Self-Expression and Control Scale by Van Elderena et al. (1997) and the Brief COPE by Carvera (1997). The results revealed significant differences between the experimental groups in coping strategies. Polish bulimic patients make less use of coping strategies based on positive reinterpretation (p lower than 0,01), humour (p lower than 0,001), and acceptance (p lower than 0,05) and they show a significantly higher alcohol-drug disengagement (p lower than 0,001) than the French patients. In addition, Polish clinical group show a significantly higher anger-out (p lower than 0,001).
Bulimia nervosa is a significant source of morbidity amongst young women. There has been a considerable body of work on its treatment since it was first described in 1979. Three treatments have shown particular promise: antidepressant drug treatment, cognitive behaviour therapy and exposure with response prevention. The research findings indicate that the approach of choice is cognitive behaviour therapy, with most patients benefiting significantly and the changes being well maintained. However, cognitive behaviour therapy is neither necessary nor sufficient for all patients with bulimia nervosa: some benefit from simpler interventions whilst others fail to respond. At present, too little is known about the factors that predict response to particular forms of treatment to allow the matching of patients with treatments.

The majority of bulimics are female, adolescent, and from a high socioeconomic group. All westernized industrial countries have reported incidence of bulimia. An estimated 0.1 to 1.5 percent of the U. S. population are reported to have bulimia. Adolescents who develop bulimia are more likely to come from families with a history of eating disorders, physical illness, and other mental health problems, such as mood disorders or substance abuse. Other mental health problems, such as anxiety disorders, or mood disorders, are commonly found in persons with bulimia.. Family, friends, and doctors may have difficulty detecting bulimia in someone they know because they binge and purge in secret. Often, they are able to maintain normal or above normal body weight, but hide their problem from others for years. Many individuals with bulimia do not seek help until they reach the ages of 30 or 50--when their eating behavior is deeply ingrained and more difficult to change.. ...

Reports that eating disorder (ED) rates are rapidly increasing seem nearly ubiquitous, but are rates actually increasing? Are EDs at an epidemic level? I came across a recently published study suggesting that this may not be the case; indeed, ED rates might actually be decreasing, at least in the Netherlands.. In the study, Smink and colleagues (2015) followed a group of general practitioners (GPs), servicing roughly 1% of the total population, asking them to record all the newly diagnosed patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN) between 1985-1989, 1995-1999, and 2005-2009. They were interested in whether incidence rates changed or remained stable over time..

In a feasibility trial comparing two forms of combined inhibitory control training and goal planning (i.e., food-specific and general) among patients with bulimia nervosa (BN) and binge eating disorder (BED), we found evidence of symptomatic benefit, with stronger effects among participants receiving a food-specific intervention. The aim of the present study was to examine changes in behavioral outcomes and event-related potentials (ERPs; N2 and P3 amplitudes) from baseline to post-intervention that might suggest the mechanisms underpinning these effects. Fifty-five participants completed go/no-go tasks during two electroencephalography (EEG) sessions, at baseline and post-intervention. The go/no-go task included
Bulimia or bulimia nervosa refers to episodes of excessive and impulsive eating of a large amount of food (hyperphagia, or what people may call overeating or binge eating ), followed by various harmful behaviours in response to the loss of food control and a fear of getting fat, e.g., vomiting, taking diuretics or laxatives, or exercising excessively. According to the diagnostic criteria of the DSM-V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), these episodes must occur at least once a week for the condition to qualify as bulimia. In general, people with bulimia will maintain a normal weight, which can allow them to hide the problem for years.. Like with anorexia, bulimia also causes great physical and psychological suffering. Vomiting can cause inflammation of the esophagus and swelling of the salivary glands. In rare cases, hyperphagia may cause the stomach to rupture. The abuse of laxatives or diuretics can cause electrolyte disorders and lead to heart or other problems. Like ...
Parents, teachers, coaches, or instructors may be able to identify the child or adolescent with bulimia, although many persons with the disorder initially keep their illness very private and hidden. However, a child psychiatrist or a qualified mental health professional usually diagnoses bulimia in children and adolescents.

Patients with Bulimia Nervosa (BN) have difficulty regulating impulsive behaviors as suggested by their binge-eating and purging, as well as the high incidence of drug abuse and shoplifting in this population. Understanding dysfunction in the frontostriatal circuitry that mediates self-regulatory control processes will aid development of new therapeutics for the impulsivity associated with BN. We are conducting a longitudinal study to better understand the development and persistence of BN.. Participation in this study includes 4 sections: Neuropsychological Tests, Diagnostic interviews, Pregnancy Test, and MRI scan. All efforts are made to coordinate procedures into one day, and they require between 4 and 5 hours of the participants time. The option of splitting participation into two study days is also offered for participants who find it more convenient. Participants are compensated with $100 in the form of a check, which is mailed to their home address. Participants will be invited back for ...
Women are more likely than men to develop Bulimia and sufferers tend to start the cycle of Bulimia in late adolescence or early adulthood.. Bulimia begins with eating an unusually large amount of food, often in an impulsive but ritualized manner. During the binge eating, its almost as if another consciousness takes hold and the food is their total focus. Afterward, theyre often consumed with overwhelming feelings of self-loathing and remorse. Binging is often followed by getting rid of any evidence of the binge and then different behaviors to curb any weight gain - like extreme amounts of exercise, harsh food restriction, use of laxatives, or even purging the food from their system by vomiting.. These post-binge behaviors come from a need to reverse the damage they have done to their body and to lower their soaring anxiety. Ironically, these efforts often end up causing more damage to their bodies and increasing their anxiety instead of helping to resolve the problem.. Similar to other eating ...

Generally, eating disorders involve self-critical, negative thoughts and feelings about body weight and food, and eating habits that disrupt normal body function and daily activities. People with bulimia typically respond to those negative thoughts by binge eating (eating abnormally large amounts of food over a short period of time) and then purging the food eaten by vomiting, fasting, exercising excessively, or using laxatives, diuretics, or weight-loss medications in order to keep from gaining weight.. With bulimia, frequent vomiting and lack of nutrition can cause stomach pain, damage to the stomach and kidneys, tooth decay, and loss of periods in girls. Over time, bulimia can contribute to serious complications, such as heart problems, kidney failure, severe malnutrition, and even death. In addition, bulimia is often associated with mental health conditions like anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression.. The causes of bulimia arent entirely clear. However, a ...
Eating disorders can occur at any age although they often begin in adolescence and women are ten times more likely to develop them than men. A study of 41,000 pregnant women taking part in the Norwegian Mother and Child Study found that 96 suffered from bulimia in the first trimester of their pregnancies, 67 had suffered from bulimia six months before their pregnancy, while 26 had developed bulimia after becoming pregnant. The women with bulimia reported lower self-esteem and less satisfaction with life and their relationship with their partner and also had a higher prevalence of symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. Women with bulimia reported a higher prevalence of life-long physical abuse, sexual abuse and major depression compared to other women ...
Bulimia is an eating disorder. Someone with bulimia might binge on food and then vomit (also called purge). Get the facts on treatment, side effects, and statistics.
So what exactly is an eating disorder? Well, its actually much more complex than one would think. An eating disorder is any pre-occupation with weight, and as you can see, its a wide spread problem. The two most common and most harmful eating disorders are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Anorexia nervosa is when a person starves themselves to the point of vomiting. They do this on a day to day basis and never see the results of their purging, they always view themselves as overweight and continue to purge until they are dead. Bulimia nervosa is over-eating to the point of purging. A person eats and eats until they vomit everything they ate back out, with the same results as the anorexics. These binge/purge cycles are never ending and never yield a positive result. Unfortunately, most lead to death along with other side effects ...
The term was coined as bulimia nervosa in 1979 by Gerald Russell. At that time Russel conceptualized bulimia nervosa as an :aftermath of the chronic phase of anorexia nervosa ...
Bulimia can be a fatal disease. Mortality rates for eating disorders vary widely between studies, with sources listing anorexia nervosa deaths from .3% to 10%. One fairly new study compared the records of individuals who had been treated at specialized eating disorders clinics with the National Death Index. Their findings for crude mortality rates were: 4% for anorexia, 3.9% for bulimia, and 5.2% for EDNOS (Crow, 2009).. The most common causes of sudden death in bulimia are cardiac or respiratory arrest, the result of electrolyte imbalances from excessive purging. Electrolytes, which are minerals in the blood-like potassium, chloride and sodium-help maintain a regular heart rhythm, as well as the function of the muscles that enable the heart to pump and the lungs to breathe. When these chemicals are depleted due to purging-often made worse by weight loss and excessive water drinking-heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) can occur. Since this can lead to sudden death, it is important to have ...
Eating disorders are an important and growing health concern, and bulimia nervosa (BN) accounts for the largest fraction of eating disorders. Health consequences of BN are substantial and especially serious given the increasingly compulsive nature of the disorder. However, remarkably little is known about the mechanisms underlying the persistent nature of BN. Using a unique panel data set on young women and instrumental variable techniques, we document that unobserved heterogeneity plays a role in the persistence of BN, but strikingly up to two thirds is due to true state dependence. Our results, together with support from the medical literature, provide evidence that bulimia should be considered an addiction. Our findings have important implications for public policy since they suggest that the timing of the policy is crucial: preventive educational programs should be coupled with more intense (rehabilitation) treatment at the early stages of bingeing and purging behaviors. Our results are ...
Anorexia versus bulimia - What is bulimia vs anorexia? Often mixed up. People often mistakenly believe that if you purge (vomit) you have bulimia, but you could have the purging form of anorexia. In general, people with bulimia are of average or higher than average weight. For more details see my lengthy blog and answers on this exact subject at www. Kartiniclinic. Com and click on kartini blog, see most popular blogs. The subject can be complex.
Objective Although clinical studies suggest that bulimia symptoms are common in youth, research on the prevalence of such symptoms and of their association with comorbid internalizing problems in the general population has been limited. This study aimed to evaluate the gender-specific prevalence of bulimia symptoms in Czech youth and explored the association between a clinical level of self-reported bulimia symptoms (CLBS) and internalizing problems by gender, controlling for age, socio-economic status and puberty status. Method The study was conducted on a representative national sample of Czech youth (N = 4430, 57.0% female) using self-report scales. Multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) was used to examine the associations. Results The 3-month CLBS prevalence was higher in girls (11.4%) than in boys (3.8%) and in both genders a CLBS was associated with higher levels of comorbid internalizing problems. Discussion Timely recognition of bulimia symptoms and associated risk factors is ...

AU - Saiz-Ruiz, Jerónimo. PY - 2000/3. Y1 - 2000/3. N2 - The involvement of brain serotonin systems in the pathophysiology of eating disorders has been repeatedly demonstrated in recent studies. Platelet MAO activity is an index of brain serotonin activity and lowered platelet MAO levels have been found in association with impulsive behaviors. In addition, some preliminary reports indicate that platelet MAO could be lowered in eating disorder patients. Methods: 47 patients with DSM-IV eating disorders were studied, including 30 with bulimia nervosa and 17 with anorexia nervosa binge eating-purging type. Platelet MAO activity was measured by isotopic methods using C-14 benzylamine and compared with a control group of 30 healthy subjects. Impulsive personality features were studied with specific rating scales. ...
Although there is still more research needed on the causes of binge-eating disorder. Binge-eating disorder often starts with a diet, which may be meant to help the person regain self-esteem and control. We believe that a combination of social influences learned eating habits, childhood experiences and food addictions are major culprits to the cause of binge-eating disorder. Those who struggle with binge-eating and compulsive over-eating have been shown to report mental health illnesses such as depression and anxiety.. Recent research has found that binge-eating is by far the most common eating disorder, with rates showing that 1 in 35 adults suffer from Binge-eating Disorder (2.8%). This rate is almost twice the combined rate for Anorexia (0.6%) and bulimia (1%). The National Eating Disorder Association has reported that approximately 25 million more are struggling with binge eating disorder. As with many other eating disorders, binge-eating often involves secretiveness and shame associated with ...
Binge eating disorder is a newly recognized disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating without extreme behaviors to lose weight characteristic of bulimia nervosa or anorexia nervosa and it is associated with overweight and obesity in both clinical and community populations. Preliminary clinical data from a recent, small, 5-week, open-label therapeutic trial in obese patients with binge eating disorder in Germany found memantine to be effective in weight reduction and reduction of binge episodes.. We plan to study 15 male and female subjects between the ages of 18 and 65 years who have binge eating disorder (with 3 or more binge days per week in the 2 weeks prior to baseline) and have a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 50 kg/m2. During the 12-week treatment phase subjects will receive open-label memantine titrated up to 20mg/day, or the subjects maximum tolerated dose. Upon completion of the treatment phase, subjects will either taper their study medication and return for a ...

Mayor Frank G. Jackson presented a proclamation to Lana Stefanac, volunteer Navigator with NEDA, recognizing February 22nd through February 28th, 2015 as National Eating Disorders Awareness Week in Cleveland.. According to the Ohio Department of Health, eating disorders are a significant public health problem for individuals across their lifespan and according to the Cleveland Clinic, eating disorders have the highest mortality of any mental illness and remain a great concern. Eating disorders can develop in anyone regardless of gender, age, race, social or ethnic background. Three of the most common eating disorders are Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge-Eating Disorder.. This year, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week is focusing on the importance of early intervention and recognizing the diverse experiences of people personally affected by eating disorders. Too often, signs and symptoms are overlooked as insignificant behaviors when in fact, many of these are early warning signs ...
Eating disorders are conditions that cause a person to have unhealthy thoughts and behaviors related to food and body image. Some people with eating disorders severely restrict their food intake (anorexia nervosa), while others eat excessively (binge eating disorder or compulsive overeating). They may also vomit, take laxatives, or exercise excessively to try to prevent weight gain (bulimia nervosa).. The cause of eating disorders is not clear, but experts believe that it is related to a number of physical, psychological, cultural, and social factors. Eating disorders are most common in teenage girls and young women, but they can occur at any age and in both sexes.. People who have eating disorders may develop health problems, such as dehydration and malnutrition. Eating disorders also increase a persons risk of other health problems related to a poor diet. These other health problems can include menstrual period changes, thinning of the bones (osteoporosis) and, in severe cases, heart and ...
Most of us will know of someone in our lives suffering from an eating disorder and we have written this article with the aim of informing and helping parents, children and young adults to recognise the early signs of eating disorders, concentrating specifically on the two most widely recognized - Anorexia and Bulimia.. What are eating disorders?. Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses that involve disordered eating behaviour. This might mean limiting the amount of food eaten, eating very large quantities of food at once, getting rid of food eaten through unhealthy means (e.g. purging, laxative misuse, fasting, or excessive exercise), or a combination of these behaviours. Its important to remember that eating disorders are rarely about fooditself, but about feelings and stress.The way the person interacts with food may make them feel more able to cope, or may make them feel in control. The Facts. · Eating disorders - including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa -are not due to a failure ...
With restrictive eating disorders (most famously anorexia nervosa, but others as well) and purging-type disorders (bulimia nervosa), the body begins to shut down after extended periods of poor nutrition and lack of caloric intake. These cause many different negative symptoms, such as extreme weight loss, organ failures, seizures and strokes, and in many cases, death. Because of the lack of fuel that sufficient nutrition provides, many people with eating disorders report a constant state of fatigue.. Paradoxically, the same eating disorders that make people feel constantly tired also often prevent regular sleep patterns. Insomnia is one of the most commonly reported symptoms of both anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. According to a 2011 study of sleep patterns in people with eating disorders, these reports involve many forms of insomnia, sometimes all at once; difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, reduced amounts of REM sleep and an increase in day sleeping are all common in ...
What is an Eating Disorder?. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), Eating disorders are -serious and often fatal illnesses that are associated with severe disturbances in peoples eating behaviors and related thoughts and emotions. Preoccupation with food, body weight, and shape may also signal an eating disorder. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.. What is Disordered Eating?. According to the National Eating Disorder Collaboration, Disordered eating is a disturbed and unhealthy eating pattern that can include restrictive dieting, compulsive eating or skipping meals.. What is the Relationship between these and Food Allergies? The prevalence of eating disorders among people with food allergies is unknown. However, there have been some studies that would suggest a connection. Since children and teens with food allergies can have increased anxiety surrounding food, they tended to restrict food more than non-allergic ...
Eating disorders are heritable illnesses. Family and twin studies show that first-degree relatives of people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder are more likely to develop these illnesses than relatives of controls with no history of eating disorders (Thornton, Mazzeo, & Bulik, 2010). Twin studies have found that when one twin has an eating disorder, if the other twin is identical, the twin has a greater chance of also having an eating disorder, compared with a fraternal twin who only shares 50 percent of the siblings genes. Family and twin studies have produced robust findings. Nevertheless, a criticism has been that environmental factors rather than genetics may explain the liability, since people raised together are also exposed to a common environment. Specialized analyses implemented in twin studies have shown that shared environment does not contribute to risk for these disorders. Adoption studies can shed light on this issue but are difficult to conduct. ...
Binge-eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, and anorexia nervosa are potentially life-threatening disorders that involve complex psychosocial issues. A strong therapeutic relationship between the physician and patient is necessary for assessing the psychosocial and medical factors used to determine the appropriate level of care. Most patients can be effectively treated in the outpatient setting by a health care team that includes a physician, a registered dietitian, and a therapist. Psychiatric consultation may be beneficial. Patients may require inpatient care if they are suicidal or have life-threatening medical complications, such as marked bradycardia, hypotension, hypothermia, severe electrolyte disturbances, end-organ compromise, or weight below 85 percent of their healthy body weight. For the treatment of binge-eating disorder and bulimia nervosa, good evidence supports the use of interpersonal and cognitive behavior therapies, as well as antidepressants. Limited evidence supports the use of guided
Binge eating disorder is an illness that resembles bulimia nervosa and is characterized by episodes of uncontrolled eating or bingeing. It differs from bulimia because its sufferers do not purge their bodies of the excess food.

Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders (OSFED) was previously known as Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS) in past editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. Despite being considered a catch-all classification that was sometimes denied insurance coverage for treatment as it was seen as less serious, OSFED/EDNOS is a serious, life-threatening, and treatable eating disorder. The category was developed to encompass those individuals who did not meet strict diagnostic criteria for anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa but still had a significant eating disorder. In community clinics, the majority of individuals were historically diagnosed with EDNOS.. Research into the severity of EDNOS/OSFED shows that the disorder is just as severe as other eating disorders based on the following:. ...

Anorexia, an eating disorder with loss of appetite. It is mostly a problem of adolescence and young adulthood, patients are predominantly females (about 90%). Generally two types of eating disorders are well-defmed-anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. These present some overlapping features, but, in anorexia nervosa weight loss is marked about 15% below expected, with distorted body image, fear of weight gain or of loss of control over food intake. In bulimia nervosa, weight loss is not marked, but shows a morbid fear of fatness associated with disturbed eating behaviour.

By Chelsea Wright-. The National Eating Disorder Association spread awareness of eating disorders from Feb. 26 to March 4 for National Eating Disorder Week.. Although data has not been collected for U of L, 14 percent of college students have a diagnosable eating disorder, including bulimia nervosa, binge-eating and anorexia nervosa.. As the Director of Eating Anxiety Treatment Laboratory Clinic, U of L professor Cheri Levinson oversees research and clinical work. Their purpose is to research the prevention and treatment of eating disorders.. If we broaden this definition to include disordered eating, which we know can be as impairing as a diagnosable eating disorder, it is estimated that up to 60 percent of college students engage in disordered eating behaviors, Levinson said.. Disordered eating behaviors include binge eating, vomiting and excessive restriction. According to Levinson, approximately 82 percent of college women report body dissatisfaction.There are many stereotypes about who ...

This systematic review is an evaluation of the empirical literature relating to the disordered eating behaviour Chew and Spit (CHSP). Current theories postulate that CHSP is a symptom exhibited by individuals with recurrent binge eating and Bulimia Nervosa. The review aimed to identify and critically assess studies that have examined the distribution of CHSP behaviour, its relationship to eating disorders, its physical and psychosocial consequences and treatment. A systematic database search with broad inclusion criteria, dated to January 2016 was conducted. Data were extracted by two authors and papers appraised for quality using a modified Downs and Black Quality Index. Nine studies met the inclusion criteria. All were of clinical samples and majority (n = 7) were of low quality. The pathological action of chewing food but not swallowing was reported more often in those with restrictive type eating disorders, such as Anorexia Nervosa, than binge eating type disorders. CHSP also was reported to be an
Aneroxia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and bingeing are some common eating disorders which play havoc on the metabolism and body. The entire physiology and the psychology of the human being is affected at the onset of eating disorders. In anorexia, patients have a tendency of losing weight and becoming borderline obsessive about their weight.. In bulimia nervosa patients have a normal weight range but they have vicious cycles of overeating and then purging themselves with laxatives. In contrast people with bingeing disorder do not attempt to compensate for their overeating and hence become obese.. Personal trainers in Balmain say that there is a scientific basis behind the occurrence of eating disorders. Eating disorders occur because of abnormal levels of serotonin, dopamine and nor-epinephrine. There are also enhanced levels of leptin found in the blood stream of people suffering from binging tendencies.. The importance of counselling and motivation. Balmain personal trainers are great in providing ...
Eating Disorder research has highlighted the role of neuropsychological functioning, informing the treatment of Anorexia Nervosa. There is ambiguity in the data relating to cognitive impairment in Bulimia Nervosa, with the latest review providing inconclusive results. Executive function impairments in the area of set shifting and inhibition reported in BN are proposed to relate to traits of compulsivity and impulsivity. Other psychological disorders have also demonstrated executive function impairments. Among anxiety disorders, only PTSD and OCD have strong evidence of executive function deficits while a number of studies point towards executive function deficits in depression. This thesis aims to investigate the specificity of cognitive impairments seen in a group of female outpatients with bulimia nervosa, using a clinical comparison group of anxious and/or depressed female outpatients. Methods A systematic review was conducted to address a gap in the anxiety disorder literature and assess the ...

Introduction-. Fondness for food is something that almost all of us can relate to. This fondness often appears in the way we look and lead lives. It is an undisputed fact that what we eat is what we become. If we eat healthy foodstuffs, we remain healthy and if we eat junk, we become vulnerable to diseases. There are people who literally love eating so much so that they have to literally vomit forcefully to take that out. Their hunger isnt suppressed by eating a regular portion of food. I personally feel that hunger is from mind which implies that they do not eat much, it is just that their mind prompts hem to eat more than they can. This results in ill effects like diseases, disorders, etc.. Eating disorder is the term coined to refer to refer to the irregular eating habits. Eat disorders may involve excessive or inadequate eating that disturbs an individuals wellbeing. Most common eating disorders observed in people are Binge Eating disorder, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, etc. that ...

Eating disorders involve serious disturbances in eating behavior, such as extreme and unhealthy reduction of food intake or severe overeating, as well as feelings of distress or extreme concern about body shape or weight.. Eating is controlled by many factors, including appetite, food availability, family, peer, and cultural practices, and attempts at voluntary control. Dieting to a body weight leaner than needed for health is highly promoted by current fashion trends, sales campaigns for special foods, and in some activities and professions.. The main types of eating disorders are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. A third type, binge-eating disorder, has been suggested but has not yet been approved as a formal psychiatric diagnosis.
