BULIMIA NERVOSA CAUSES SYMPTOMS RISK FACTORS DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT

Diagnosis

As the bulimic may keep his /her disorder a secret it may go undetected and sometimes may be diagnosed
only years later when the problem is much advanced, maybe when the patient shows bizarre eating behaviour to the extend of even shoplifting food or  stealing money to buy food. 

A diagnosis requires binge eating at least twice a week for three months. An open talk with the person is the only way to know the seriousness of the situation and extent of their behaviour. Laboratory tests can only reveal medical complications like low blood sugar, low potassium, dehydration etc.
