Binge eating disorder diagnosis and treatment
TREATMENT TO BINGE EATING DISORDER AND ADULT ADHD STARTS FROM A DIAGNOSIS.
Binge Eating Disorder is the most common eating disorder in North America, and highly common among people with overweight or obesity. Approximately 25% of people with overweight or obesity have this eating disorder. It is characterized by the compulsion to continue eating despite feeling full, and a loss of control when trying to stop eating.
It is also very treatable. When untreated, however, binge eating disorder can limit our weight loss success. Moreover, it can linger to perpetuate shame and guilt around our eating patterns that can derail other healthy behaviours we have achieved for weight loss. At your first visit, you will be screened for binge eating disorder. If present, you will also be offered treatment for binge eating disorder in conjunction to your weight loss treatment.

Binge eating disorder has a cousin condition: adult ADHD. When undiagnosed and untreated as an adult, it is commonly associated with weight gain. In fact, risk of obesity is 1.5 x higher in adults with untreated ADHD. However, when we treat adult ADHD, the risk disappears. During your first visit, you will be screened for ADHD and similarly offered treatment in conjunction with weight loss therapies.
