Nighttime Eating Disorder

Nighttime eating disorder constitutes one of countless variety of eating disorders. The nighttime eating disorder is a condition which is defined by a lack of appetite in the morning which is caused by a problem of overeating at night inadvertently. The nighttime eating disorder is different from other eating disorders such as binge-eating and bulimia in the way that individuals with the nighttime eating disorder take relatively small snacks at night but more frequently, whereas individuals who suffer from binge-eating or bulimia eat in larger amount but infrequently.

This disorder can be handled through treatment that incorporates counseling and an urge to paying attention to ones own detailed medical and nutritional needs. But this treatment should be customized to the individual according to both the severity of the disorder and the patient’s particular difficulties, requirements and fitness.
