Binge Eating Disorder is something I have, not something I do.
Jamie R. Diagnosed with moderate B.E.D.
Binge Eating Disorder, or B.E.D., is something I have…not something I do.
When my doctor told me I had moderate B.E.D., it explained why my eating was so out of control.
I’d often eat a lot more than normal in a short period of time, in secret. It was so upsetting. My doctor told me about Vyvanse, the first medicine approved for adults with moderate to severe B.E.D.

Binge Eating Disorder (B.E.D.) is the most common eating disorder among adults in the US compared to anorexia and bulimia. Advances in medicine in the last few years have resulted in B.E.D. being recognized as a real medical condition. While the exact cause of B.E.D. is unknown, certain brain chemicals may play a role. Risk factors may include family history and certain life experiences. More research is needed to determine the possible causes of B.E.D.
