Bulimia nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by a cycle of bingeing and compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting designed to undo or compensate for the effects of binge eating. It can be extremely harmful to the body.The recurrent binge-and-purge cycles can damage the entire digestive system and purging behaviors can lead to electrolyte and chemical imbalances in the body that affect the heart and other major organ functions. The reason for developing Bulimia differs from person to person; known causes include genetic predisposition and a combination of environmental, social and cultural factors.

Scope and Importance:

Bulimia Nervosa Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn about the progress on the eating disorder by international scientists and academicians. Bulimia runs in families being more common among those having a close relative with the condition. The percentage of risk that is estimated to be due to genetics is between 30% and 80%. Other risk factors for the disease include psychological stress, cultural pressure for a certain body type, poor self-esteem, and obesity. Living in a culture that promotes dieting and having parents that worry about weight are also risks. Diagnosis is based on a person's medical history. However, this is difficult as people are usually secretive about their binge eating and purging habits. Thus, attention is required towards the overall clinical assessment of bulimia and awareness is needed to be spread about the consequences of this health disorder.

Bulimia Nervosa Conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all the aspects of: 1. Bulimia & 2. Binge-eating Disorders It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in finding creative ways to identify, diagnose, understand and treat patients with all types of Eating Disorders with individualized focus and intention. The recent research in Epidemiology shares knowledge to scholars pursing their studies in this field.

Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by frequent episodes of binge eating, followed by frantic efforts to avoid gaining weight. It affects women and men of all ages. When one is struggling with bulimia, life is a constant battle between the desires to lose weight or stay thin and the overwhelming compulsion to binge eat. If one does not want to binge—they know and they will feel guilty and ashamed afterwards, but time and again they give in. During an average binge, one may consume from 3,000 to 5,000 calories in one short hour. After it ends, panic sets in and one’s turn to take drastic measures to “undo” the binge, such as taking ex-lax, inducing vomiting, or going for a ten-mile run. And all the while, they feel increasingly out of control. Dieting triggers bulimia’s destructive cycle of binging and purging. The irony is that the more strict and rigid the diet, the more likely it is that one will become preoccupied, even obsessed, with food. When one starves themselves, their body responds with powerful cravings, its way of asking for needed nutrition. As the tension, hunger, and feelings of deprivation build, the compulsion to eat becomes too powerful to resist: a “forbidden” food is eaten; a dietary rule is broken. With an all-or-nothing mindset, one feels any diet slip-up as a total failure. Unfortunately, the relief that binging brings is extremely short-lived. Soon after, guilt and self-loathing set in. And so one purges to make up for binging and regain control. Unfortunately, purging only reinforces binge eating. Binge eating signs and symptoms includes lack of control, over eating and inability to stop eating, eating until the point of physical discomfort and pain. Secrecy surrounding eating like going to the kitchen after everyone else has gone to bed. Going out alone on unexpected food runs and wanting to eat in privacy. Eating unusually large amount of food with no obvious change in weight. Disappearance of food, numerous empty wrappers or food containers in the garbage, or hidden stashes of junk food and alternating between overeating and fasting. They rarely eat normal meals. It’s all-or-nothing when it comes to food. Purging signs and symptoms includes going to the bathroom after meals, frequently disappears after meals or takes a trip to the bathroom to throw up or may run the water to disguise sounds of vomiting. Using laxatives, diuretics, or enemas after eating or may also take diet pills to curb appetite or use the sauna to “sweat out” water weight, smell of vomit – the bathroom or the person may smell like vomit. They may try to cover up the smell with mouthwash, perfume, air freshener, gum, or mints. Excessive exercising – works out strenuously, especially after eating. Typical activities include high-intensity calorie burners such as running or aerobics. Physical signs and symptoms of bulimia includes calluses or scars on the knuckles or hands from sticking fingers down the throat to induce vomiting, puffy “chipmunk” cheeks caused by repeated vomiting, discolored teeth from exposure to stomach acid when throwing up. It may look yellow, ragged, or clear, not underweight – men and women with bulimia are usually normal weight or slightly overweight. Being underweight while purging might indicate a purging type of anorexia, frequent fluctuations in weight, weight may fluctuate by 10 pounds or more due to alternating episodes of bingeing and purging. Therapy for bulimia includes breaking the binge- and -purge cycle, changing unhealthy thoughts and patterns and solving emotional issues.

Market Analysis:

Globally bulimia is estimated to affect 6.5 million people in 2013. About 1% of young women have the bulimia at a given point of time and about 2% to 3% of women have the condition at some point in their lives. According to a study, bulimia nervosa is prevalent between 1 and 2 percent of women aged 15–40 years. The global market on treatment of bulimia grew at a CAGR of 1.7% during the five years from 2008 to 2013. Growth can be partially attributed to increasing understanding and awareness of the prevalence of eating disorders. The diet-related industry is a 50 billion dollar a year enterprise.
