Bulimia leads to many health problems and ultimately death. Initially, you will experience corrosion of the esophagus because of the constant acid going through it and dehydration. Once your body has no nutrition, you are basically doing to your body what a starving person has no choice but to do and are slowly killing yourself. Your systems will begin to fail.
Even though you are losing weight this way, it isn't the good kind of weight. Instead of losing fat, you are losing lean muscle; the kind of weight you WANT. Please find alternative ways other than bulimia, nothing good comes of it.

My friend is a nineteen year old male, and he shows definite signs of bulimia. He has lost 10 pounds in the past two weeks, throws up once a day (and has been for three weeks now), works out excessively, avoids eating, and has binge eating episodes. He has very low self esteem (of his body physique). I ve told him to stop or get help, and have shown him websites about the effects it could have on his body if he continues, but he refuses to tell anyone besides me or get treatment. What else can I do?

about 3 years ago i had bulimia. It is finished now and i have not intentionally vomited for about six months, but over the last two weeks at night time my body just throws up food. it has happened every night. I can't stop it i am not forcing it it just happens spontaneously, is this because of the eating disorder i have been feeling a little ill, do i need to go to the GP?
hi,I have been having episodes of shortness of breath lately - for about two weeks. This occurs mainly, but is not limited to after meals. It occurs sometimes when I am merely lying down. I used to be bulimic. I haven't been for about 2 months. I am also often constipated.

How can I tell my doctor about my bulimia? Will my doctor tell my parents?
I am 17 years old and have been throwing up every day for like 6 monthes now. Since 6th grade I have been doing these weird ed behaviors like restrict and return to normal habits and then I began purging for a month but still returned to normal. But lately I can’t go one day without purging my food! Every day I wake up and tell myself there is nothing wrong, then I randomly in class I begin to think about all the foods I can eat and purge. I don’t want to do the sports I had passion for because ids rather just go home and purge. Then, it’s when I’m cleaning up all the vomit I realize this is disgusting and not who I am I need help but never do anything because I don’t wanted to be judged and just soooooooo…many reasons. In 55’ and weigh 135 depending on the day like honestly it can raise or drop 5 in a day. There is so much more but yeah!
