    Differences in BED?
  • 5. Main Criteria for Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
    Recurrent episodes of binge eating 2 days/wk for 6 mos.
    objectively large amount of food in a discrete time period (2 hours)
    sense of loss of control
    without purging afterwards
  • 6. Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
    • Stomach Capacity
    • 7. Gut peptides (leptin, CCK, ghrelin)
    • 8. Brain Imaging
    • Stomach functions as a food reservoir.
    • 9. Stomach capacity could limit meal intake
    and influence satiation.

  • 10. Gastric Capacity
    Estimated by filling a intragastric balloon with water at 100 ml/min through a tube connected to a pump behind the person
    based on maximum volume tolerated
    based on volume required to produce a
    fixed rise in intragastricpressure.

  • 14. The two estimates of gastric capacity correlated (r = .60, p = .001) with each other.
  • 15. Test Meal
    Participants ingested a liquid meal through a straw from a large opaque cooler to prevent visual feedback until extremely full.
  • 16.
  • 17. Test meal intake correlated significantly
    (r = .42, p = .03) with gastric capacity.

  • 19. Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
    • Stomach Capacity
    • 20. Gut peptides (leptin, CCK, ghrelin)
    • 21. Brain Imaging
  • Leptin
    • Leptin is secreted primarily by adipose tissue and rises slowly after meals. Leptin administration decreases food intake and weight in animals (Zhang et al., 1994) and modestly inhumans (Heymsfieldet al., 1999).
    Hypothesis
    • Leptin would rise to a lesser extent postprandially in BED.
  • CCK
    • CCK, is secreted primarily by the duodenum, and rises after meals. CCK administration decreases food intake in animals (Gibbs et al., 1973) and humans (Kissileff et al., 1981).
    • 22. Evidence that postmeal CCK rises less in Bulimia Nervosa (Devlin et al., 1997), perhaps contributing to larger meal intake.
    Hypothesis
    • CCK would also rise to a less post meal in BED.
  • Ghrelin
    • Ghrelin, is secreted primarily by the stomach and stimulates food intake in animals (Tschöp et al., 2000) and humans (Wren et al., 2001).
    • 23. Ghrelin is elevated before meals and falls afterwards (Cummings et al, 2002), unlike other peripheral appetite hormones, which rise after meals.
    Hypothesis
    Obese individuals with BED would have high ghrelin levels given their excess meal intake.
  • 24. Methods
    • After a 12 h overnight fast, an intravenous catheter was inserted at 8 am. Subjects rested for 15 minutes before first blood draw at -15 min.
    • 25. Meal was provided at time 0 and consumed at constant rate from graduated beaker in 5 min.
    • 26. The breakfast liquid test meal (600 ml diluted Boost) provided 1254 kJ (300 kcal): 24% protein (19 g), 55% carbohydrate (41 g, including 20 g sugar), and 21% fat (6 g).
  • Methods (cont’)
    Blood samples were assayed for several peptide
    hormones, including leptin, CCK, and ghrelin.

  • 30. Ghrelin Findings
    BED S’s had lower fasting ghrelin levels than non-BED S’s, contrary to hypothesis.
    In BED S’s, ghrelin levels declined less after meal.
    Results extend and are consistent with findings of lower ghrelin levels in obese individuals.
    Ghrelin may be down-regulated in obese BED S’s due to overeating possibly via stomach capacity.

  • 40. Results and Discussion
    • The only brain area activated for all members of a group was the premotor area in the obese binge eaters in response to the binge type foods.
    • 41. For 80%, it was in the oral premotor region.
    • 42. It is unlikely that this was due to swallowing as the primary motor area was not activated.
    • 43. The premotor area is involved in planning of motor behavior, and may reflect thoughts about ingesting the binge type foods.
  • Groups Analysis (Method 2)
    Another analysis underway is with Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM), which combines brains from subjects in a group and maps to a reference brain.

  • Stress & Eating Disorders
    • Stress plays a role in initiating eating episodes in:
    --Bulimia Nervosa
    --Binge Eating Disorder
    • Does stress also play a role in Night Eating?
  • Stress & Night Eating
    Onset of NES
    • Many develop NES following life stress (Stunkard, 2002)
    • 72. NES often remits if stress alleviated (Stunkard, 2002)
    • 73. Progressive muscle relaxation improves symptoms of NES (Pawlow et al, 2003)
    (Allison & Stunkard, 2004)
  • 74. Stress & Cortisol
    • Cortisol secretion by adrenal gland is a major component of the stress response
    (Ur, 1991).
    • Glucocorticoids can increase food intake & body weight in rats (Dallman et al., 2003)and humans(Tataranni et al., 1996).
    • 75. Cortisol may be a potential mediator of stress-induced eating episodes.
  • HPA Axis
    Yehuda R, N Engl J Med, 346; 2002:108-114.
  • 76. Cortisol in Eating Disorders
    • Several studies have examined cortisol in eating disorders after a laboratory stressor:
    --Exaggerated plasma cortisol response in AN (Abell et al, 1987), BN (Koo-Loeb et al, 2000), and BED (Gluck et al., 2004)
    --Higher 24-h urinary cortisol following a stressor in BN (Koo-Loeb et al, 2000)
    • No studies have examined:
    --cortisol in response to laboratory stress in NES
    --or ghrelin, which has recently been shown to increase in response to a laboratory stressor
  • 77. Hypotheses
    NES would have:
    • higher basal levels of cortisol
    • 78. higher cortisol levels following
    Cold Pressor Test (CPT)
    • less suppression of cortisol after a
    dexamethasone suppression test (DST)
  • 79. Methods
    • Recruited obese women with and without NES
    • 80. Measured basal plasma cortisol at 8:30 am
    • 81. Measured plasma cortisol at 8:30 am in response to dexamethasone the night before
    • 82. Cold Pressor Test (CPT) at about 12:30 pm

  • Proposed Research Diagnostic Criteria for NES(First International Night Eating Symposium, April 26, 2008, Minneapolis, MN)
    I.    The daily pattern of eating demonstrates a significantly increased intake in the
    evening and/or nighttime, as manifested by one or both of the following:
    A. > 25% of food consumed after the evening meal
    B. > 2 episodes of nocturnal eating per week
    II. Awareness and recall of evening and nocturnal eating episodes 
    III.  > 3 of the following:
    A. Lack of desire to eat in the morning and/or breakfast is omitted on four or more
    mornings per week
    B. Presence of a strong urge to eat between dinner and sleep onset and/or during
    the night
    C. Sleep onset and/or sleep maintenance insomnia are present four or more nights
    per week
    D. Presence of a belief that one must eat in order to initiate or return to sleep
    E. Mood is frequently depressed and/or mood worsens in the evening
    IV.  The disorder is associated with significant distress and/or impairment in functioning.
    V.   The disordered pattern of eating has been maintained for at least 3 months.
    VI.  The disorder is not secondary to substance abuse or dependence, medical disorder,
    medication, or another psychiatric disorder.
