Binge eating disorder is more common than you may realize, and can have a serious impact on physical and mental health. Patients could develop high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, fatigue and joint pain. Patients may also struggle with feeling out of control, stressed, guilty, and ashamed.
With support from EDCare, patients can get their life back. We have helped many patients find long-term success with recovery from binge eating disorder. Our proven treatment approach delivers evidence-based care to binge eating disorder patients, giving them the best chance for a successful recovery. It’s unique in its highly personalized and holistic approach that helps patients regain health through Connection, Acceptance, Mindfulness, a Sense of Self, and Action – the foundations of true empowerment.
Symptoms of Binge Eating Disorder
People with binge eating disorder have repeated episodes of consuming large quantities of food. They may feel distressed, guilty and ashamed after an episode, and as though they have no control. People with binge eating disorder don’t regularly use unhealthy compensatory measures to counteract the effects, unlike those suffering from other eating disorders like bulimia nervosa.
Binge Eating Disorder episodes usually involve:
• Eating fast, often to the point where patients are uncomfortably full
• Eating a lot even when they’re not hungry
• Eating while they’re feeling as if they have no control
• Significant distress
• Guilt and/or depression
