Abstract
The psychological profile of obese patients with binge-eating disorders is often characterized by decreased self-esteem, general dissatisfaction with life, impulsivity, phobias and hostility. So, it is not surprising that the association of obesity with binge-eating disorders is aggravated by the presence of psychic disorders, like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders. A study conducted at our department on 150 obese patients with non-specific binge-eating disorders, clearly showed that about 75% of them presented a positive score in the self-evaluation test for depression, nearly 60% suffered mild to very high anxiety, and about 50% had problems with self-affirmation.
