What are the complications of binge eating disorder?
People with binge eating disorder tend to be deficient in vitamins and minerals because much of the food they eat is full of fat and sugar, which lack good nutritional value. Approximately half of the people who binge are obese.
The majority of complications are conditions that accompany obesity. These include:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Heart disease and stroke
- Certain cancers
- Gallbladder disease
- Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders related to distress over binge eating
