Binge Eating Disorder Associated With A Broad Range Of Other Illnesses

Medical Daily (9/21, Dovey) reports that binge eating disorder (BED) may be “linked to a broad range of other illnesses,” research suggests. People with “BED had a 2.5 times greater risk of also having an endocrine disorder and a 1.9 times increased risk of a circulatory system disorder,” while “obese people with BED had a 1.5 times increased risk of having a respiratory disease and a 2.6 times increased risk of having a gastrointestinal disease than those who were not obese,” the study found.

The findings of the 9,350-patient study were published online Sept. 19 in the International Journal of Eating Disorders.
