Anorexia and bulimia nervosa are not the same. These two eating disorders have many similarities but many differences. Too often, anorexia and bulimia are confused for one another or roped together into one “eating disorder”. Addressing the individual signs and symptoms of eating disorders is essential to getting a loved one the help that they need. While both anorexia and bulimia have severe side effects and threats, over time, anorexia proves to be fatal, while bulimia has serious health complications. Anorexia nervosa has one of the highest rates of fatality in all of mental health. Below are descriptions and symptoms of anorexia and bulimia.
Anorexia nervosa is most strongly characterized by binging and restricting. Many of the behaviors associated with purging are different from bulimia. The emphasis in anorexia is on restricting, often times to dangerous levels.
