So the side affects of Purging disorder are similar to the sides of effects from eating problems where purging is prominent like Bulimia nervosa. Purging, typically in the form of vomiting, possibly also laxative abuse, diet pill use, and other ways of compensating for ingestion of calories can be loaded with side affects. So what you’re doing with most of these compensatory behaviors like vomiting or laxative use is, you’re moving fluids in and out of the body, water and electrolytes. You’re not really accomplishing that much as far actually changing the amount of calories that sort of stay in the or not. This we actually know.

Your blood pressure might go down. And you can also have other side effects that can be related to electrolyte fluctuations. Low potassium is one of the big medical signs in purging types of problems. And low potassium can have a whole consolation of symptoms including feeling weak and crampy. In severe cases can lead to things like heart arrhythmia.

So lots of side effects that come from Purging disorder, and I can’t overstate how important it is to try to get help for Purging disorder, other types of purging problems like Bulimia nervosa.
