Recently the Surgeon General rightly stated that the biggest medical problem for the United States today was overweight and obesity. What is not so often talked about is the other end of the scale that is to say Bulimia Nervosa and Anorexia Nervosa. Bulimia is a condition that mainly affects young women in the West and western cultures in other parts of the world such as Japan and Australia. It is primarily a dieting disorder although paradoxically the main symptom is overeating. Following an episode of Bulimia the sufferer has guilt and self-blame and a feeling of failure and this leads to putting a finger down the throat to induce vomiting. This is then followed by the sufferer vowing never to repeat the overeating again. Typically the young person is restricting food intake or is dieting and by the evening when she is so hungry she eats the forbidden food. This results in feeling I have ruined the diet now so I might as well binge. More commonly bulimia becomes a depressing compulsion and not all suffers vomit after binges. Some take laxatives appetite suppressants diuretics or other medicines. The result is that physical and mental health suffer.
