Course Description: Food addiction (FA) is a clinical description of abnormal eating. The researchers explored food addictions from various theoretical perspectives including addiction, nutrition, psychology, and neuroscience. FA is not a recognized diagnosis under the DSM-V nor is it recognized in the ICD-10, although the authors argue that it should be. FA is correlated with substance use disorders (SUD). FA is often underdiagnosed and untreated in obese patients. The researchers posit that FA treatment needs a multi-level intervention, with different clinical departments, to develop and implement effective treatment options.
