Too Much Binge Eating
Complications of binge eating mirror those of obesity - heart disease, diabetes, increased stroke risk and certain cancers. There are treatments for binge eating; cognitive behavioral therapy can help teach patients how to curb bingeing and modify their behavior to avoid binges. Psychotherapy may help sufferers explore the personal reasons why they binge. Drug therapy with antidepressants may also be beneficial.
