Today's Parent Tip
Can someone with bulimia get better?
Yes. Someone with bulimia can get better with the help of a health care team. A doctor will provide medical care. A nutritionist (noo-TRISH-un-ist) can teach healthy eating patterns. A therapist (thair-uh-pist) can help the patient learn new ways to cope with thoughts and feelings.
Therapy is an important part of any treatment plan. It might be alone, with family members, or in a group. Medicines can help some people with bulimia. These include medicines used to treat depression. Medicines work best when used with therapy.
Chances of getting better are greatest when bulimia is found out and treated early.
