Physical Implications of Bulimia

BULIMIA NERVOSA

 
Eating disorders affect physical and psychological health, emotional wellbeing, social life, work, education, relationships and so much more.
 
While many of the clients we work with, and have worked with, express and talk about how, for example, Bulimia affects their mental health, emotional wellbeing and social life, they also often disregard or are unaware of the physical implications of Bulimia Nervosa.
 
Bulimia is a serious condition and it's really important to take note of the possible physical implications - both short-term and long-term - too.
 
The infographic below illustrates some of the potential physical risks associated with Bulimia.
 
If you need some support or someone to talk to about Bulimia or any other eating disorder/disordered eating, our psychotherapists, counsellors and dietitians are here to support you in making changes and working towards recovery. We can support you with any non-eating disorder problems and concerns too.
 
Appointments are available on a weekly or fortnightly or monthly basis in-person at our clinic in Glasgow city centre. We also offer online and telephone appointments to anyone across the UK. some therapists also offer email and text therapy too. We also hope to offer Walk and Talk Therapy by the end of this year too. 
 
Therapy is at your pace and there is never any pressure to make changes or talk about anything you don't feel ready to. Also, we don't constantly focus on weight and food and calories because we know that eating disorders are so much more than that. We help you find out why you are experiencing what you are experiencing and then help you to put into place the goals and tasks you need to do to feel well again.
 
Get in touch today to find out how you can start making changes to your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, all of which will improve your social life, work life, relationships and quality of life.
 
Take one step at a time..... even if it's just dropping us a little email for now. You can take the next step after that when you're ready to or, if you're ready, then make that first appointment! Do something important for YOU!

Focus on..... Binge Eating Disorder

  Focus on..... Binge Eating Disorder (BED)   Binge Eating Disorder or BED is often characterised by someone consuming very large amounts of food over short period of time, even if they are not hungry. Although, we often see another form of binge eating that is characterised by an almost constant 'grazing' of food, which may amount to a large volume of food over time. BED is almost 2x as common in women than in men, although gender differences are less pronounced than in Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. BED has been found is all cultures and ethnicities. BED was formally classified in 2014 as distinct Eating Disorder and now has formal classification in DSM-5. Keeping in mind that everyone experiencing BED is different and BED may present differently (we are all different and unique, after all!), some of the signs and symptoms of BED include: * Feeling out-of-control when eating during a binge episode. * Often hiding food (before it has been eaten or hiding empty packets a
