Imagine A World Without Bulimia Nervosa
We Can Turn This Hope Into A Cure
What is Bulimia Nervosa? Fast Facts
Eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia nervosa primarily affect young women. Most individuals with eating disorders have a distorted and negative body image. Those who struggle with binge eating and bulimia focus on their body size, weight and shape in unhealthy ways. They also tend to have obsessive and intrusive thoughts about food and eating.
Many people with bulimia think they look fat, even when their body shape and size actually appear normal. Two to three of every 100 American women experience bulimia at some point in their lives. Treatment is vital because bulimia can cause serious health and dental problems over time. About 2% of young women with bulimia die every decade. Around a fifth of those deaths are due to suicide.
