    Binge Eating Disorder - Exams and Tests

    Doctors diagnose binge eating disorder by asking questions about your medical history and eating habits. Your doctor also might do a mental health assessment, which is an evaluation of your emotions and how well you think, reason, and remember. If you are overweight, your doctor may also do a physical exam to rule out problems caused by obesity.

    Binge eating disorder often is associated with being overweight. Your doctor might use a tool called the body mass index (BMI) to look at how much you weigh compared with your height.
