Binge eating is usually followed by self-induced vomiting and accompanied by feelings of guilt or depression . Complications resulting from prolonged Bulimia '>Bulimia include gastric dilatation , pancreatitis , dental decay, pharyngitis , esophagitis , pulmonary (lung) aspiration , and electrolyte abnormalities. Constipation and hemorrhoids are also common in bulimics.

    What to expect at your health care provider's office

A history of the eating patterns may be sought from one or more family members because the affected person may not acknowledge that they are binge eating. Medical history questions documenting binge eating in detail may include:
  • How long has this been occurring?
  • Are "purge" behaviors (such as self-induced
  • vomiting or laxative abuse) also present?
  • What other symptoms are also present?
  • Possible diagnostic tests include blood studies, such as electrolyte levels. INTERVENTION Behavior is usually controlled with counseling, biofeedback training (a process of monitoring body functions and altering these functions through relaxation), and individual or group psychotherapy. AFTER SEEING YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER If a diagnosis was made by your health care provider related to excessive eating, you may want to note that diagnosis in your personal medical record.
