Tune In: Sleep Eating on The Dr. Oz Show

Tune in this Thursday, March 4 to The Dr. Oz Show when he investigates a very real condition that affects thousands of Americans while they sleep.

Nocturnal Sleep-Related Eating Disorder (NS-RED) typically occurs during sleepwalking. People with this disorder, most of which are women, eat while they are asleep, often preparing food without even realizing what they are doing.

It is different from Night Eating Syndrome (NES) in which the person is completely aware of eating at night and may not be able to fall asleep until he or she has consumed a significant amount of food.

Sleep eating disorders not only cause weight gain, but the excess pounds can lead to a host of diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

This show also features’s guest blogger, Jill Knapp. Read more about Jill’s story in this Tune-In.

i do this!!!! i have diabetes and am overweight. i had a terrible time getting my doctor to listen to what i was saying. i felt like he blew me off because i am fat it is just an excuse. i finally had a breakdown in his office begging him to listen to me. i make sure my kitchen is clean before i go to bed so i can see how much damage i did during the night. i have eaten dry rice, cracked a filling and had a stomach ache for awhile, 1/2 loaf of bread, dry oatmeal and peanut butter alot of peanut butter.
