Bulimia can have terrible affects to your body. For one...your teeth will begint to lose their enamel. They will eventually get eaten away through years of constant vomiting. The blood vessels around your eyes could break and cause puffiness and swollen eyes from the pressure of the vomiting. Bulimia can affect your internal organs as well. You run a greater risk of esophogeal cancers and erosion of your espohogus and throat. It can also adversely affect your heart. It is not as deadly as anorexia, but it can kill. It is also harder to treat than anorexia. There are programs in place to help you through your local MHMR chapters. This should be based on it will not cost you a fortune. Paying a small price now to recieve some help in dealing with this is nothing compared to saving your own life. I wish you well.

Over the short term bulimia will cause irritation and inflammation in the throat, mouth and gums, after a few months being bulimic, your teeth begin to rot from the stomach acid flowing pas them. A person might also developer gum disease and swelling in your cheeks from that acid. Vomiting too often and violently can also rupture the esophagus.

As for the long term effects of bulimia, I'll just list a few of 'em to keep it short: Malnutrition (obviously), dehydration, dry skin, weak nails, hair loss, high blood pressure, iron deficiency and cancer of the throat or voice box. There are also numerous diseases you can develop in your intestines and kidneys and bulimia makes pregnancy more risky for women.

That is a quick summary of the wonderful effects of this eating disorder. If you or someone you know is suffering from it, tell an adult and tell them quickly. Bulimia can kill, no matter how little it’s being done.

Well. Bulemia is the act of throwing up your food after you eat. It ruins your esophagus because when you throw your food back up, the stomach acids eat away at it, and it also rots your teeth. As for eating, kiss that goodbye. Once you start the process of bulemia, it becomes a natural reaction that whenever food enters your body, it exits back out. Your body will become so accustomed to throwing it up that it wont know how to keep liquids or solids down anymore. Basically, since you cant keep food down you will be malnutritioned and have to enter the hospital where you will be closely monitered and nutrients will be injected into your system. I dont suggest trying to become bullemic, it really messes with the process of injecsting and digesting foods.

it decays the back of your teeth, and causes shortage of minerals and enlarged salivary glands. you can also get stomach ulcers and rare heart diseases.
(but mainly, your teeth will be DECAYED badly!)

im assuming either you or a 'loved one' has bulimia, so if its your friends, you should talk to them or get them to see a counselor, and if its you, you should see a counselor

also, this goes with anorexia, you will lose your period, meaning you may not be able to have a baby till yearssss after you start getting your period (i notice ive been saying you/your, i dont necessarily mean you..) bulimia is serious disease
