Description

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is characterised by insatiable food cravings that can occur at any time of the day or night. With the association of BED and obesity, this disorder has become a major public health issue that presents both medical and psychiatric issues that impair patients’ quality of life. While the prevalence of this disorder is increasing, awareness is lacking.

BED is now included in the newly revised Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 (DSM-5). Including the disorder as a separate entity will provide the opportunity for increased awareness and understanding of its severity and will help practitioners better identify and manage it. Based on the recent DSM-5 changes, it is likely that the number of patients diagnosed with BED will substantially increase. This CME activity will take a closer look at the prevalence, screening, and treatment options for BED to improve awareness and treatment of this condition.
