Binge Eating Effects

Many of the medical complications that are associated with binge eating disorder are those linked to obesity. As the major long-term consequence of compulsive overeating is weight gain, this eating disorder typically leads to medical complications including heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. In addition, kidney disease and/or kidney failure, stroke, and sleep apnea also tend to result over time from binge eating disorder when it remains untreated. While binge eaters are not necessarily obese, obesity is a frequent outcome if the binge eating and compulsive overeating behaviors continue over long periods of time.

As painful as it is to be here and do what they’re asking, I don’t think I’d be able to do it without the McCallum Place support. You don’t have to know how to fix it, just be willing to listen and try their suggestions.
