Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder marked by bouts of out-of-control binge-eating followed by self-induced vomiting or use of laxatives or diuretics to purge. People with bulimia may use other compensatory behaviors after bingeing, such as fasting or overexercising. There's no way to tell by looks alone whether a person is bulimic and both bingeing and purging are done secretly. The disorder typically begins during adolescence, and the recommended treatment is cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy combined with care for medical complications, if necessary.
