Bulimia and Anorexia Have Both Been Known To Cause Pancreatitis.

Eating disorders such as Bulimia and Anorexia have both been known to commonly cause pancreatitis. Mild acute pancreatitis is a common condition of those suffering from either bulimia or anorexia. Both bulimia and anorexia are extremely damaging eating disorder conditions and a major and dangerous complication of each is pancreatitis. Some people who have bulimia or anorexia get constant pancreatitis however others don’t get it at all. After doing substantial research on the topic the dangers of eating disorders are major. 

Usually the instances of pancreatitis are temporary however they can last for a longer period of time. If you know someone who has an eating disorder please get them medical attention as there are also many other dangerous complications which can arise as a result of these conditions. Anorexia is characterised by avoiding food. Food is often rarely consumed by people suffering from anorexia and a family friend who I knew had it would only eat one apple a day. This is extremely common and both bulimia and anorexia can prove fatal due to various complications, such is the importance and danger of these conditions.

This also highlights the fact the bulimia and anorexia need increased awareness. Even though the general public already know what this is, increasing awareness is needed. I have been reading through figures studying information over the past hour to write this post and the large numbers have frightened me substantially. Sufferers of these illnesses will often take laxatives to give themselves diarrhea which leads to a loss of liquid and a lighter weight. Despite this being highly dangerous consuming a substantial amount of laxatives can also lead to pancreatitis. 

If you know someone who is suffering from either bulimia or pancreatitis then please try get them help or at least have a chat to them so they can try seek help themselves. Out of all the posts I have done to help readers out this is one of the most frightening topics. Both these disorders have multiple potential complications which can prove fatal for those who have these illnesses.
