In order to deal properly with bulimia we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors. We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow bulimia to develop?"
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind bulimia consists of three steps:
|Need For Dietary Improvement||29%||Unlikely|
|Poor Digestion||5%||Ruled out|
|Brain Tumor||4%||Ruled out|
|Low Serotonin||1%||Ruled out|
|Liver Congestion||0%||Ruled out|
Bulimia. Have you ever had this eating disorder?
Possible responses:→ Don't know
→ In the past only, not a current problem
→ Current moderate problem
→ Current major problem
Having had an eating disorder as a child increases the risk of a brain tumor later in life.
Polycystic or multifollicular ovarian cysts are common in bulimics.
