Clearview Girls Academy Helps Girls Suffering From Eating Disorders like Bulimia Nervosa
Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder in which she alternates large food intake periods with fasting. Purging (using self-induced vomiting or enemas or laxatives) is frequent. Bulimia is closely related to body dissatisfaction and is approximately nine times more common in females than males.
Significant symptoms and side effects include dehydration, tooth decay, constipation, ulcers, and esophageal inflammation. Because there is not by and sizeable striking change to total body weight, and your daughter may be average or above average, Bulimia is more difficult to perceive and identify than Anorexia.
Clearview Girls Academy is an Ideal Setting to Help Your Daughter with Bulimia Nervosa
Left untreated, Bulimia can lead to many serious, even life-threatening complications. These might include depression, digestive problems (from laxative abuse), gum disease, dehydration (possibly leading to kidney failure), and coronary problems (even heart failure).
Treatments are available for your daughter; usually, a combination of psychotherapy and (anti-depressant) medications will be beneficial. She might find value in working with a dietician, as well, to help establish helpful nutritional and eating habits.
As you might expect, your daughter will benefit from family support to help with her Bulimia Nervosa. Whether hereditary in origin or not, body image (often a distorted one) is at the heart of her disorder. Once her Bulimia treatment has ended, varying your menus and family eating routines can go a long way towards promoting healthful habits so that she won’t revert to her previous negative behaviors and keep Bulimia Nervosa from retaking control of her life!
