Although the researchers did find that there was a greater incidence of Bipolar Disorder in those with BPD as compared to other personality disorders, it was found that 80 percent of those with BPD do not have bipolar.

Despite the superficial similarities, the treatment for BPD and bipolar differ significantly. As a result, application of the correct diagnosis can help ensure appropriate and effective treatment.
