How do you know if you, or someone close to you, needs bulimia treatment or bulimia therapy?

Bulimia nervosa is one of the most common eating disorders that affects people from all walks of life, but is most commonly seen in young women, especially in adolescent females. There are many signs and symptoms that might indicate that you need bulimia treatment or bulimia therapy.

Do you have episodes of binge eating followed by attempts to rid yourself of food eaten? Have you ever misused laxatives of diuretics for weight loss purposes? Do you feel that you have issues related to your body image? Do you suffer from feelings of guilt or shame about eating? Do you attempt to lose weight by exercising excessively or restricting your food intake?

If some or all of the above relates to you, you may benefit from seeing a psychologist. Psychologists use therapies supported by research to effectively treat bulimia.

How can you spot signs of bulimia in your family and friends?

Bulimia is a condition that afflicts many people, but sufferers tend to hide their struggles from loved ones due to shame, guilt or denial. There are some signs you may be able to spot that may indicate a loved one is struggling with bulimia, including:

  • Recusing themselves after meal times
  • Attempts to block the sound of self-induced vomiting (e.g. flushing the toilet several times or playing music while showering)
  • Long showers
  • Left over wrappers from chocolate bars and chip packets
  • Stashes of hidden food
  • Hypersensitivity around food or plans for eating out
  • Talking about food frequently
  • Restrictive eating or dieting
  • Fluctuations in weight
  • Dental erosions or swelling of the parotid glands
