Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Anorexia or Bulimia is a psychological eating disorder characterized by intentional purging and the use of abusive and inappropriate methods to flush out the foods consumed. Like many eating disorders, the definite cause of Bulimia still unknown and people suffering from the disorder always refuse to acknowledge their condition even after they have already undergone medical diagnosis.

It is difficult to say if a person is suffering from Bulimia because there are many Bulimics who maintain good eating habits in public. Bulimics who binge-eat do so in private and also purge privately to avoid the scrutiny of others. You won't be able to determine by a way a person looks if he is suffering from Bulimia. Most Bulimics are able to keep the excess weight off by purging the excess food that they take in. Bulimics like Anorectics suffer from poor self-esteem and have distorted body images and will do almost anything to lose more weight or keep the unwanted pounds off.

The most common type of Bulimia is forced vomiting although laxative-abuse is also on the rise. Aside from malnutrition, people suffering from Bulimia Nervosa may suffer from one or several of these diseases: Peptic ulcers, dehydration, inflammation of the esophagus, iron deficiency or anemia, muscle atrophy, depression, teeth erosion and others.

Like the other eating disorders, Bulimia may be cured under the supervision of a qualified therapist or doctor.
