What are the health consequences of Binge-Eating Disorder?

People with binge-eating disorder are usually very upset by their binge eating and may become depressed. Research has shown that people with binge-eating disorder report more health problems, stress, trouble sleeping, and suicidal thoughts than people without an eating disorder. People with binge-eating disorder often feel badly about themselves and may miss work, school, or social activities to binge eat.

People with binge-eating disorder may gain weight. Weight gain can lead to obesity, and obesity raises the risk for these health problems:

  • type 2 diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • gallbladder disease
  • heart disease
  • certain types of cancer
