DSM-5 may be the latest in the Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders posted by the American Psychiatric Association introduces changes that are important within the analysis system for eating disorders which gets better the capability for clinicians to reach a precise diagnosis and will hopefully result in better reimbursement from insurers. Probably the most significant enhancement together with the DSM 5 is the fact that Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is relocated from the obscurity of an appendix in the DSM IV to becoming specified in the DSM 5 as a full fledged diagnosis which parallels the various other primary eating disorders.
