  1. 1. Correlation Between BingeEating Disorder & Kidney Failure
  2. 2. Issue• Binge Eating Disorder Disease • Renal Failure Technology • Kidney Transplant
  3. 3. IssueBinge Eating Disorder
  4. 4. DescriptionBinge eating is basically a condition where aperson consumes an insane amount of food in ashort period of time on a regular basis.
  5. 5. Signs To Look ForThe person would:• Not have control over the amount they eat• Eat unusually large amounts of food• Have severe depression• Eat even though not hungry• Be easily irritated
  6. 6. DiseaseRenal Failure
  7. 7. DescriptionRenal Failure means that the kidney(s) lose theirbasic function of filtering urea and other wastesfrom the blood stream. If left alone, the personwould end up poisoning themselves through thewaste products produced by the food they eat.
  8. 8. Symptoms• Swelling of extremities• Nausea• Potassium build up• Phosphate build up• Darkening of skin• Low volume of urine
  9. 9. Affect on BodyA Renal failure will have drastic consequences ifleft untreated. The body will slowly becomeseptic and poison itself due to the high levels ofurea in the blood. Patients with renal failure willhave to undergo dialysis at least 3 times a weekjust to keep them alive and kicking. If it wereonly a acute renal failure, the kidneys may beable to regenerate and function properly again.
  10. 10. RelationThe relationship between a binge eating disorderand renal failure is an indirect one. The eatingdisorder will provide an imbalance ofconcentration between water and solutes in theblood. That in turn will make it easier for thesolutes to form precipitates in the form of akidney stone. If it slides into the ureter, thepressure caused in the kidney will graduallydestroy the renal substance, leading to renalfailure.
