Are obesity risk genes associated with binge eating in adolescence?
|Published in||Obesity. 2015, vol. 23, no. 8, p. 1729-1736|
|Abstract||Cognitions and behaviors characteristic of binge eating are associated with a polymorphism in the FTO gene, robustly related to body mass index (BMI) and obesity risk. We investigated the association between binge eating and the individual and combined effect of 32 SNPs robustly associated with BMI in a population-based sample. We hypothesized that higher BMI and binge eating might share a common genetic etiology.|
