Metrics details. This study examined the accuracy of these scales for detecting bipolar disorder among patients referred for eating disorders and explored the possibility of simultaneous assessment of co-morbid borderline personality disorder. Participants were 78 consecutive female patients who were referred for evaluation of an eating disorder. Among patients being evaluated for eating disorders, the MDQ and BSDS show promise as screening questionnaires for both bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. Peer Review reports. As bipolar disorders are serious mental disorders that can cause severe lifelong functional impairment, early recognition of the diagnosis and early introduction of mood stabilizers are crucial for improvement of outcomes [ 1 ].

The Bipolar Spectrum Diagnostic Scale

Objectives: Recent research has suggested that bipolar disorder, when defined to include milder variants such as bipolar II disorder and bipolar disorder not otherwise specified NOS , is more prevalent than had been previously reported and often underrecognized. Recommendations for improving the detection of bipolar disorder have included careful clinical evaluations inquiring about a history of mania and hypomania and the use of screening questionnaires. At this cutoff the specificity of the scale was We compared the patients with and without bipolar disorder on each of the BSDS symptom items.


Bipolar Spectrum Diagnostic Scale (BSDS)

This test may help you understand where on that spectrum your depression falls. So you must interpret your results carefully, by learning a lot about subtle bipolarity. At some point you may see a mental health professional, either a skilled therapist like an MSW, or Ph.

Patients are typically diagnosed during their 20s. The English version of the scale consists of 19 question items and two sections. It differs from most scales in that it does not list separate items, but rather presents a short paragraph talking about experiences that people with bipolar spectrum disorders often have.
