BED patients are also more likely to have a comorbid (co-existing) diagnosis of impulsive behaviors such as compulsive buying, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, or personality disorders.
The term comorbid is used to refer to a disease or disorder that occurs at the same time as another disorder.
ADHD should be the primary target of management in children diagnosed with a tic disorder and comorbid ADHD.
Comorbid conditions, such as diabetes and high cholesterol, are diagnosed using medical laboratory tests.
A physician may prescribe medication for Asperger's syndrome if a comorbid condition exists.
