Washington, Oct 30 (ANI): A new study has found that binge-eating disorder is as destructive for men as it is for women but men are less likely to seek treatment as compared to their female counterparts.
Striegal and her colleagues analysed bot
h men and women who participated in health risk self-assessment screening.
Just over 21,700 men and 24,600 women participated in the screening and the researchers analysed differences within that group for obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, depression and impairment in work productivity.
The researchers found that out of the 46,351 people questioned, 1,630 men and 2,754 women reported binge eating, which they defined as experiencing at last one binge episode in the past month.
The study has been recently published in the International Journal of Eating. (ANI)
