What is nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder (NS-RED) like?
People with this disorder eat while they are asleep. They often walk into the kitchen and prepare food without any recollection of doing so. If NS-RED happens often enough, a person can gain weight and raise their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
