Our expert says:
When you have bulimia, and you self induce vomiting, you lose a lot of important electrolytes through the stomach fluid. This can cause heart irregularities, liver and kidney problems. A very low fat absorbtion can cause hormonal imbalances and also reduce the absorbtion of important vitamins A, D, E and K, and the loss of other important soluble vitamins can cause deficiencies leading to anemia and low immunity. The acid from your stomach can burn the esophagus and damage the enamel of the teeth.
