Binge eating: disorder that causes obesity is treated with counseling, in Uerj

The routine of people who suffer from binge eating disorder journals (BED), is being investigated by the doctor and nutritionist Henyse Gomes Valente da Silva, at the State University of Rio de Janeiro (Uerj), which has been evaluating how the compulsion affects health the obese.

According Henyse, the irregular pattern of food intake in people who suffer from binge is associated, among other factors, changes in hormonal and inflammatory process involved in hunger and satiety. One goal of the research is to compare the inflammatory and metabolic profile of obese and obese sufferers who do not suffer from this problem, summarizes the researcher. We hypothesized that obese individuals with BED have worse metabolic profile and inflammatory, and lower response to dietary treatment, Henyse account.

To verify this hypothesis, about 80 obese patients - half of them with binge eating and the other half without this disorder - are being monitored with a series of tests to detect metabolic and inflammatory profile, before and six months after starting treatment and nutritional Psychological regular at Polyclinic Piquet Carneiro, UERJ. Let's do the adiponectin hormone levels, insulin and cortisol, and to evaluate, in the first half of 2013, the inflammatory status of the patients examined by C-reactive protein, known as CRP (C-English-reactive protein), which is produced by liver, explains Henyse. Still evaluating the metabolic profile, we have followed the lipid and blood glucose, and it is already possible to say that there was a considerable improvement before and after six months of treatment in many patients, he says.

Patients with other types of eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, are also seen in the nucleus. Psychological care is a gap in the project. During the first six months of service, they participate in weekly sessions of group psychotherapy. After this period, they continue to receive a monthly monitoring, because the compulsion has no cure but can be controlled highlights.
