Bipolar disorder leads to eating disorder?

Interesting (albeit brief) article about the possible link between Bipolar and eating disorders. - News: Bipolar disorder leads to eating disorder: "Dr. Carla Ramacciotti of the University of Pisa in Italy recently submitted writings to the journal of Psychiatry Research explaining that there is definitely a relationship between mood disorders and eating disorders. This relationship, however, remains nebulous.
Though eating disorders are relatively common among the bipolar community, it is often difficult to discern whether it is a product of mood alterations or a function of prescribed medications for the disorder. "
