Food Addiction Diagnostic Assessment – SUGAR

Incorporating, SUGAR® (Sugar Use General Assessment), a comprehensive diagnostic assessment tool designed to evaluate sugar, flour, carbohydrates, processed and ultra-processed food, and their related consequences. Administered as a structured interview, Food Addiction Diagnostic Assessment fills a gap in the field of sugar/food addiction by providing a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation instrument. While several screening tools exist, such as UNCOPE, Yale scale (YFAS), and various self-assessment questionnaires, none offer the same level of comprehensive evaluation as the SUGAR® incorporated by Sugars Addictive.                                      
The ultimate tool for Food Addiction Diagnostic Assessment. Our diagnostic program will easily track and analysis your habits, behaviours, and patterns related to sugar consumption. Whether you suspect you may have a sugar addiction, or simply want to gain a better understanding of your relationship with sugar, FADA is key.

Accurate Diagnosis with DSM-5 and ICD-10 Criteria

One of the key strengths of this assessment is its ability to accurately distinguish between pathological (addictive) use and harmful use. This differentiation is crucial in identifying appropriate treatment approaches, as these two conditions require different treatment protocols. Addiction to sugar, flour, and/or processed food is a chronic, complex, and serious disease that typically necessitates a treatment model of abstinence. On the other hand, harmful use, such as stress eating or emotional eating, can sometimes be addressed through a treatment model of moderation.
Using recognised international standards of DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases), SUGAR offers a precise assessment of sugar addiction. By answering thoughtfully crafted interview questions, our SUGAR Practitioner will evaluate your results to determine if you meet the criteria for a diagnosis of sugar addiction.

The evaluation and diagnosis includes screening for Addiction Interaction Disorder (AID), recognizing that addiction can manifest in various outlets, including alcohol, prescription pills, and recreational drugs. By addressing addiction as one illness with multiple expressions, SUGAR ® provides a more comprehensive understanding of your overall addiction profile.

In addition to its diagnostic capabilities, each assessment incorporates an addiction development curve. This curve illustrates your relationship with sugar, flour, and food from the initial stages of harmful use to the present.
