For Moderate to Severe Binge Eating Disorder in Adults
Binge Eating Disorder (B.E.D.) is the most common eating disorder among adults in the US compared to anorexia and bulimia. Advances in medicine in the last few years have resulted in B.E.D. being recognized as a real medical condition. While the exact cause of B.E.D. is unknown, certain brain chemicals may play a role. Risk factors may include family history and certain life experiences. More research is needed to determine the possible causes of B.E.D.
