Our expert says:
Generally patients with bulimia do induce vomiting immediately after eating or they use harsh laxatives that cause them to pass frequent bowel motions to remove the food they have eaten. It is possible that your friend is suffering from bulimia and goes to the bathroom to purge by vomiting. See if you notice any changes in her teeth because the constant vomiting and bringing up of acid stomach contents, damages the enamel of the patient's teeth. However, your friend may suffer from various digestive upsets which cause frequent bowel motions. So be very tactful if you enquire about her habit of running to the bathroom. You can always ask her what condition she is suffering from?
Hope you can help your friend because bulimia is a dreadful condition which can damage a person's entire life.
