Eating Disorders

Eating disorders, while not as common of a comorbidity in bipolar disorder as substance use or anxiety disorders, is overrepresented in bipolar disorder (Krishnan 2005). In an inpatient sample there was an association between bipolar illness and eating disorders and 32% of the patients had a history of suicide attempts and self-injurious behavior (Stein et al. 2004). While rates of suicides and suicide attempts is high in patients with eating disorders, there is not enough data currently available to know whether the presence of an eating disorder in patients with bipolar disorder increases the suicide risk compared with patients without eating disorders (Corcos et al. 2002).
