What Are Side Effects of Purging? | Eating Disorders

August 24, 2019


So the side affects of Purging disorder are
similar to the sides of effects from eating problems where purging is prominent like Bulimia
nervosa. Purging, typically in the form of vomiting, possibly also laxative abuse, diet
pill use, and other ways of compensating for ingestion of calories can be loaded with side
affects. So what you’re doing with most of these compensatory behaviors like vomiting
or laxative use is, you’re moving fluids in and out of the body, water and electrolytes.
You’re not really accomplishing that much as far actually changing the amount of calories
that sort of stay in the or not. This we actually know. And so what you’re doing as far as creating
side effects is, you’re creating the effects of being dehydrated. So in Purging disorder
you might feel light headed. You might feel dizzy. Your blood pressure might go down.
And you can also have other side effects that can be related to electrolyte fluctuations.
Low potassium is one of the big medical signs in purging types of problems. And low potassium
can have a whole consolation of symptoms including feeling weak and crampy. In severe cases can
lead to things like heart arrhythmia. So these types of side effects from Purging
disorder are not to be taken lightly. There are also the psychological effects of engaging
in something like Purging disorder. So the after effect of doing something in secret
so regularly, which means, you’re staying in isolation, you’re probably withdrawing
from friends and family, and keeping secrets, and that can’t feel good either, can lead
to feelings of low self esteem, isolation. So lots of side effects that come from Purging
disorder, and I can’t overstate how important it is to try to get help for Purging disorder,
other types of purging problems like Bulimia nervosa. And good help is out there.

  1. Hello! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I notice a lot of people keep on talking about Bulimilorex Remedy (google it), but I'm not sure if it's good. Have you thought about home remedy called Bulimilorex Remedy? I have heard many unbelivable things about it and my mate completely cures her bulimia safely with this remedy.

  2. I used to be so afraid of gaining weight that I cut food out of my life and when I was forced to eat, I would always purge it up, including the water I drank for fear of putting on water weight. Let me tell you, this is no fun. I was admitted in the hospital countless times for dehydration and was lying to my parents and doctor as to why I was puking because I felt so pathetic for doing it. I still do this sometimes…:(

  3. But purging does get rid of the calories, if it didn’t I’d be 100000 pounds by now. I eat like 9,000 cals
