Bulimia Nervosa
 
The Eating Disorders Program treats male and female children and adolescents up to 21 years of age with eating disorders and problems including Bulimia Nervosa .

Bulimia Nervosa is an illness characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating usually followed by purging. A bulimic person tends to binge on high-calorie, easily-ingested foods, and is preoccupied with body shape and weight. Regular purging behavior (such as self-induced vomiting, use of laxatives or diuretics, strict dieting or fasting), or rigorous exercise in order to prevent weight gain accompanies this disorder.
