When to Seek Medical Care
Any sign that a person may be suffering from an eating disorder is reason for that person to be evaluated by a doctor. People with bulimia generally have feelings of guilt about their behavior and are less likely than those with anorexia to deny that a problem exists when interviewed by an understanding professional. Your doctor would be a good first contact. The initial evaluation can help determine if a serious medical complication exists. Referrals to therapists experienced in the treatment of eating disorders can then be made.
Bulimia often has a number of health risks associated with it.
Bulimia can cause a number of serious medical conditions that could require urgent treatment.
