Bulimia Nervosa is also a type of eating disorder, in which, a person tends to have an inconsistent pattern of eating. Sometimes the person over eats so much that it exceeds his/her normal amount (binge-eating) and at other times, the person tries to compensate his over-eating to prevent weight gain by engaging in behaviours such as self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, fasting or using laxative and diuretics.

The nutritional deficiency caused by eating disorders can have a negative impact on vital organs or have life threatening consequences.
