Bulimia Nervosa Health Center

Can someone with bulimia get better?

Yes. Someone with bulimia can get better. A health care team of doctors, nutritionists, and therapists will help the patient recover. They will help the person learn healthy eating patterns and cope with their thoughts and feelings. However, bulimia is a long-term illness that requires vigilance on the part of the patient, and patients may have symptoms even with treatment. People with fewer medical complications of bulimia, and those who are willing and able to take part in therapy have the best chance of recovery.
