What is Anorexia Nervosa?

Effects of Atypical Bulimia Nervosa

Effects of Atypical Bulimia Nervosa

Atypical bulimia nervosa can wreak havoc on a person's life and greatly challenge their ability to cope with everyday stressors and life events. That's because atypical bulimia nervosa can have a strong effect on a person's behavior and mood, as well as causing them to engage in behaviors that put their mental and physical health at risk. 

Those struggling with chronic atypical bulimia nervosa suffer from cyclic episodes of binge eating and purging. As a result, people with atypical bulimia nervosa often feel out of control and unable to understand why they have these binges and purges. 

As the disorder progresses, people with atypical bulimia nervosa tend to engage in compulsive behaviors. Such behaviors may include excessive exercising, fasting, and purging. 

The physical and psychological effects of atypical bulimia nervosa may cause a host of other symptoms, including a lack of energy, poor concentration, insomnia, and digestive issues.9 

Short-Term Effects

The most common short-term effects of atypical bulimia nervosa include:

  • Cravings for food
  • Binging behaviors
  • Loss of self-esteem
  • Irritability
  • Gastrointestinal difficulties
  • Hemorrhoids
