Binge Eating Disorder (BED): Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2027

Binge eating disorder (BED) was first noted by Albert Stunkard in 1959, who described the consuming of large quantities of food at irregular intervals and its link to obesity. However, BED was only officially recognized as a distinct eating disorder in 2013, with the publication of the Diagnosis and Statistical Manual, Fifth Edition. Previously, the American Psychiatry Association (APA) had listed binge eating as a feature of eating disorders not otherwise specified. Since its recognition as a distinct clinical disorder, awareness of BED has been slowly increasing, but BED is currently only properly diagnosed in a small proportion of cases.

BED is currently the most common eating disorder in the US. It tends to appear during late adolescence or adulthood, which is later than anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN) typically present. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is regarded as the first-line treatment for BED, but pharmacotherapy is also available as an adjunctive or alternative treatment to CBT. BED is associated with a number of comorbidities, including depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, which must be taken into account when selecting pharmacotherapy.

Similarly to other eating disorders, individuals with BED can take decades to recover without treatment, and of those who do receive treatment, some may recover in less than a year, but it more commonly takes 3-7 years. At present only one pharmacotherapy is approved in the 7MM for the treatment of BED, Shire’s Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate), which received an approved label expansion to include BED by the FDA in 2015. However, other therapeutics including antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and obesity drugs, are commonly used as off-label treatments.
