Int J Eat Disord 2021 Jun 1. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, USA.

Objective: Alterations in brain structure have been implicated in the onset and acute phases of several forms of psychopathology. However, there is a dearth of research investigating brain structure in persons with binge eating, contributing to poor understanding of mechanisms associated with binge eating.

Method: Adolescent girls and women (aged 14-35 years) with binge eating (n = 56) and group age-matched girls and women without binge eating (n = 26) completed structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and interview-based and self-report assessments of eating disorder and general psychopathology.

Personality traits and night eating syndrome in women with bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder.

Eat Weight Disord 2021 May 31. Epub 2021 May 31.

University of Otago, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Purpose: Previous research suggests that eating disorders may be associated with certain personality profiles; however, there is limited research investigating associations with night eating syndrome (NES). This research suggests harm avoidance personality trait is higher in NES individuals than in the general population, however, evidence of associations with other personality traits is inconsistent. To understand which personality traits are associated with NES symptoms, the current study aimed to improve understanding of the relationship between NES symptoms and a range of personality traits, addressing limitations in the earlier literature in this area by controlling for common confounders.

A Clinician-Controlled Just-in-time Adaptive Intervention System (CBT+) Designed to Promote Acquisition and Utilization of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Skills in Bulimia Nervosa: Development and Preliminary Evaluation Study.

JMIR Form Res 2021 May 31;5(5):e18261. Epub 2021 May 31.

Center for Weight, Eating and Lifestyle Science, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, United States.

Background: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for bulimia nervosa (BN) is most effective when patients demonstrate adequate skill utilization (ie, the frequency with which a patient practices or uses therapeutic skills) and skill acquisition (ie, the ability to successfully perform a skill learned in treatment). However, rates of utilization and acquisition of key treatment skills (eg, regular eating, urge management skills, and mood management skills) by the end of the treatment are frequently low; as a result, outcomes from CBT for BN are affected. Just-in-time adaptive interventions (JITAIs) may improve skill acquisition and utilization by delivering real-time interventions during algorithm-identified opportunities for skill practice.

Transl Psychiatry 2021 May 27;11(1):326. Epub 2021 May 27.

Center for Primary Health Care Research, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden.

To clarify the structure of genetic risks for 11 major psychiatric disorders, we calculated, from morbidity risks for disorders in 1st-5th degree relatives controlling for cohabitation effects, in the Swedish population born between 1932 and 1995 (n = 5,830,014), the family genetic risk scores (FGRS) for major depression (MD), anxiety disorders (AD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder (BD), schizophrenia (SZ), bulimia (BUL), anorexia nervosa (AN), alcohol use disorder (AUD), drug use disorder (DUD), ADHD, and autism-spectrum disorder (ASD). For all affected individuals, we calculated their mean standardized FGRS for each disorder. The patterns of FGRS were quite similar for MD and AD, and for AUD and DUD, but substantially less similar for BUL and AN, BD and SZ, and ADHD and ASD. Read More

Common and Emergent Oral and Gastrointestinal Manifestations of Eating Disorders.

Gastroenterol Hepatol (N Y) 2021 Apr;17(4):157-167

Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Eating disorders (EDs) such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder are associated with restricted diets and abnormal compensatory behaviors, frequently leading to malnutrition and oral and gastrointestinal manifestations. Dental and oral complications are generally caused by malnutrition, micro-nutrient deficiency, and chronic acid exposure; hence, treatment of the ED and frequent dental examinations are essential to reduce morbidity. Gastrointestinal manifestations are multifactorial in origin, and may be caused by disordered behaviors, malnutrition, anxiety, and/or may be a function of the ED itself. Read More
