With the throwing up, sounds like Bulimia, but the distinction isn'[t criticial in that the treatment is similar. But very definitely sounds like an Eatng Disorder. You don't mention her age. If she's young enough, her parents can more easily press her into seeing a psychiatrist and preferably an Eating Disorder Clinic( eg at Tara ) ; otherwise it comes down to lots of careful persuasion. Sounds like she really needs the help, and her family needs to realize that this is a serious condition --- people may even die of it if its neglected.
