Common Questions and Answers about Binge eating statistics


2169060 tn?1337634832 Certainly emotions can trigger a person to want to eat, but the control is lost truly when the food has ignited the reward pathway in the limbic brain. It is not what is eating you (Binge Eating Disorder), but what you are eating (Food addiction) that is the problem. This distinction is important.
514715 tn?1338269858 The constant reinforcing of the message that thinness equals beauty, acceptance, and success compels a frightening number of young women to strive for this ideal at any cost. As an eating disorder specialist with 30 years’ experience treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and related disorders – and as someone who overcame my own battle with anorexia in my early 20s – I understand well the relationship between media pressures and the onset of eating disorders.

Avatar f tn I am also 10 minutes late for everything and my home can be quite disorganized at times. I went to the psyc to sort out my headaches and binge eating and guess what? Here I am ADHD inattentive (the lethargic daydreaming type without hyperactivity). I tried Ritalin but got a rash and chest pain so I am on Dex now and feeling grat so far. Good luck. I hope this gets sorted out for you.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend had his gb out a year ago and really has to watch eating the fired foods - doesn't matter what it is - his tummy starts gurgling and off to the bathroom he goes. I hope you have the same experience as Avas Mom, but be careful the first few days/weeks. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in Criterion 5. 2. a pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation. 3. identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self. 4. impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., spending, sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, binge eating).
Avatar m tn I am currently in school and taking statistics so this makes perfect sense to me. He said that your body is just different in this area and this what makes you, you. If it was something low or critical we would take action. I guess what he is saying is that this outlier is a non-essential concern. Here are my results below… Results 05/2013 Solstats Result Range IgA = 682 68-379 tTG IgA = 8.3 <20 tTG IgG = 6.
Avatar n tn Recent government surveys indicate that about 13 percent of pregnant women drink during pregnancy (3). About 3 percent of pregnant women report binge drinking (five or more drinks on any one occasion) or frequent drinking (seven or more drinks per week) (3). Women who binge drink or drink frequently greatly increase the risk of alcohol-related damage to their babies. When a pregnant woman drinks, alcohol passes swiftly through the placenta to her fetus.
Avatar f tn I have never heard of such a liberal rule. I've heard that more than four drinks is considered a binge, yadda, yadda. When I used to drink beer, five was not even in the range, I would have a moderate day if I only drank 12 cans of beer during the course of the day. Now they are saying women should keep it at one drink a day or they significantly increase their breast cancer risk.
Avatar n tn Most recently, i've been on i guess what you'd call a 'binge' taking one every day (it's been about a month of everyday, one a day, use) again, I've never gone over the 80mg and continue to take them in the same way, as I described earlier in this post. I've decided (obviously) that i need to stop and i guess i'm just worried and curious about the withdrawls that i'm going to be experiencing. I am taking Klonopin (prescribed) and am wondering if that will help me through it.
Avatar n tn Let me first say that I don't have statistics handy to specifically answer your question about if pot effects diabetics differently than non-diabetics, but I will research that and get back to you. I can tell you that smoking marijuana effects your judgement and will impair your ability to make good decisions; doing so really puts you in a position to damage your health.
Avatar n tn I have mild scarring given length of time of infection (also shocking given the binge drinking I have done as a teen and in my twenties), so I reason I am progressing very slowly which is common for people infected as infants. 3. I am hoping more effective treatment is available with less side effects in 5 years. Also. in 5 years my daughter will be 18, so I will be free to treat without worrying about tx affecting my parenting (I am a single parent).
Avatar n tn Suprisingly, like you said, for migraines, but off-label, prescribed for depression, and appetite control/binge eating. I tend to comfort eat when depressed so the topamax helps at least during times of mania when I feel charged up about getting my life back together, losing that extra weight===and the topamax really does kill the cravings because you just don't feel hungry like you would without it. So it's a triple threat med and my mom has benefited from it too.
Avatar f tn So, what dose did everyone here have their success? And what type of diet/eating plan and exercise plan did you do to help it along? I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
92903 tn?1309908311 I know you are very bright so I am puzzled by that example as 352 carbs reflects what I would consider to be binge eating and is way too many carbs for anyone, be they nondiabetic or diabetic. I can't argue with your doctor's approach - it's working and with your profile and 60 grams of carbs per day in addition to exercise I would expect that it would.
Avatar n tn They have EXCLUDED former IVDU and others with high risk behaviors from the statistics. I have provided a possible explanation for this phenomenon. What is your explanation...other than everybody is a liar?
Avatar n tn For a few weeks now I have this click in my throat when I swallow. Not when I am drinking water or eating, but just during normal swallowing. It doesn't click when my head is down or up, but it clicks when I am looking straight. If I put my fingers just above adams apple I can feel a click. Please help me to identify what it could be.
Avatar n tn the worst part is for the past 3 years i have wanted to have another child sometimes i blame it on myself and start binge eating so i can put on weight because i feel thats why i cant get pregnant. plus the fact that every person in my family are all baby factories. you know when im at home by myself i could not tell you how many times i see those weight loss commercials and stuff and think to myself i need to gain weight wheres the commercial for me?
Avatar n tn My father, at that point, had stopped eating and taking in fluid, making him very listless and insensible (he would usually sleep most of the day with his breath dragging - it sounded as if he was grasping for air after being choked). Although he was physically blunt, he was still mentally able and felt (He managed to lift his spirits, gather the last of his strength and give my sister and I a hug before he left for hospice).
Avatar n tn Legs, which would only feel ok when moving, fellt like itchy bones. Brain which wouldn't be calmed. I read that eating carbohydrates helps so I had some toast and lots of water. Still a very restless night. Up and down. Walking helped more than sitting. But nothing at all really helped much. Saturday morning (+48 hrs), for some odd reason, I felt elated. A little spark returning I thought.
Avatar n tn My anxiety and panic attacks are in check now and my BP is good. This is from exercise and a total change in eating habbits. I still get a little concerned ( better then anxious or nervous) because my immune system was knocked the hell out of when I was crazed with anxiety. I trecently took a long run of antibiotics from 3 different docs because they could not figure out what else to do and it gave me a terrible yeast ( oral thrush) problem that I now cannot seem to get rid of.
