It usually starts when someone is dieting but starts having binge episodes in which they eat large amounts of food within a short time. With treatment, though, people with binge eating disorder get better. It is usually easier to treat than other eating disorders such as bulimia.</p><h2>What are the signs and symptoms of binge eating disorder?</h2><p>Although struggles with eating can look different for each person, binge eating disorder (BED) has some common signs and symptoms.</p><h3>Behavioural signs</h3><p>Common behavioural signs of BED include:</p><ul><li>eating very quickly</li><li>feeling out of control with eating</li><li>eating even if full, sometimes until uncomfortably or painfully full</li><li>eating separately from the family or in secret (sometimes in the middle of the night) due to embarrassment about what or how much is being eaten </li><li>feeling self-disgust, guilt and depression, especially about eating patterns</li><li>hiding wrappers around the house</li><li>avoiding social situations, especially those involving eating</li></ul><h3>Physical signs</h3><p>The main physical sign of BED is rapid weight gain.</p><p>Given the difficulties a person may have with eating, BED can lead to problems at school, in close relationships and in social situations, especially if they involve eating.</p><h2>What causes binge eating disorder?</h2><p>The exact causes of binge eating disorder are unknown, but they are often a mix of genetics, psychological factors and social factors. </p><h3>Genetics</h3><p>A family history of eating disorders may make someone more vulnerable to developing binge eating disorder.</p><h3>Psychological factors</h3><p>Teens who struggle with depression or anxiety or have emotions linked to their eating or dieting may also be at increased risk of developing binge eating disorder. Emotional eating, poor self-esteem and feeling unhappy about how your body looks are all linked with the condition. It is not known if these situations and feelings cause binge eating or occur because of it.</p><h3>Social factors</h3><p>Some common social factors of binge eating disorder include social pressures to fit in and media messages about achieving certain body types. These can lead to emotional eating, where someone may be using food to help manage unwanted feelings. This pattern can put someone at risk of binge eating disorder if they are unable to adjust their eating based on how hungry or full they are feeling.</p><h2>Who is affected by binge eating disorder?</h2><p>Binge eating most commonly starts in a person's late teens or early adulthood. It usually follows a period of extreme dieting or weight loss. About two to three in 100 teens and young adults struggle with binge eating. </p><p>Mental health conditions that are often linked with binge eating disorder include:</p><ul><li>depression</li><li>bipolar disorder</li><li>anxiety</li><li>substance use disorders</li></ul><h2>How is binge eating disorder diagnosed?</h2><p>There is no specific medical test to diagnose binge eating disorder. Instead, a doctor will arrive at a diagnosis after asking you questions and examining you.</p><p>The doctor will usually ask you about your mood and eating patterns, your body image (how you feel about your body) and how you feel about eating. Sometimes you may also meet with a dietitian to talk about your eating patterns. Your doctor may also order blood tests to see if there are any medical complications from binge eating or if anything else might affect your appetite. </p><h2>When to see a doctor about binge eating disorder</h2><p>See a doctor if you feel like you are out of control when you are eating. They can help you figure out a plan to get help.</p><h2>Resources</h2><p> <a href="http://www.nedic.ca/">NEDIC – National Eating Disorder Information Centre</a> (Canada)</p><p> <a href="https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/">NEDA – National Eating Disorder Association</a> (United States)</p><p>American Academy of Pediatrics – <em> <a href="https://www.healthychildren.org/English/health-issues/conditions/emotional-problems/Pages/Is-Your-Teen-at-Risk-for-Developing-an-Eating-Disorder.aspx">Eating Disorders in Children</a> </em></p><p> <a href="https://www.beateatingdisorders.org.uk/">B-EAT – Beating Eating Disorders</a> (United Kingdom)</p><p> <a href="https://keltyeatingdisorders.ca/">Kelty Eating Disorders</a> (Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre, BC Children's Hospital)</p><h2>References</h2><p>Practice Parameters for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Eating Disorders - J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry 2015;54(5):412–425.</p>
