Bulimia Warning Signs

Because those who struggle with bulimia are often within a normal weight range, the illness may go undetected by others for years. Help for bulimia disorders should be considered when a person frequently:
 
  • Makes excuses to go to the bathroom after meals
  • Demonstrates mood swings
  • Buys large amounts of food that suddenly disappear
  • Has unusual swelling around the jaw
  • Has scars, marks or abrasions on the back of the hands
  • Eats large amounts of food on the spur of the moment
  • Often leaves laxative or diuretic wrappers in his/her trash can
  • Has unexplained disappearances of food at home or in the residence hall
