Binge Eating Disorder Continues to Rise Among Men

Eating Disorder Center of Denver Offers 10-Week Treatment Program for BED

04/17/2012 // Denver, Colorado, United States // FrankieCervantes // Frankie Cervantes // (press release)

About 8 million men and women suffer from Binge Eating Disorder (BED), which is nearly three times the amount of those affected by Anorexia and Bulimia. With as many men affected by BED as women, The Eating Disorder Center of Denver (EDCD) aims to offer a treatment program that is accommodating and effective for both genders.

A newly recognized condition, those suffering from BED eat more than normal meal portions, feel a loss of control when eating and do not purge after binging.

Men are traditionally underrepresented in clinical trials for BED that gauge the effectiveness of treatments and are often overlooked when developing treatment programs, according to Dr. Tamara Pryor, EDCD clinical director.

“Many people are unaware of male eating disorders, especially when it involves BED, and would not be able to pinpoint the symptoms especially among men,” said Dr. Pryor. “BED is a serious condition and we hope to raise awareness about the prevalence among men to encourage more successful treatment and support of our male patients.”

The EDCD offers a 10-week treatment program for BED, which consists of a specific psychological therapy along with other services that recognize the need for lifestyle changes in order achieve full recovery.
