The problem is that your potassium can drop immediatly after you throw up. That's what's dangerous about it. I don't want you to think there is a pill or anything you can take to counteract the dangers of bulimia, but when I used to purge I would always drink a glass of OJ and a banana afterwards. OJ has a lot of potassium in it. Please speak to your doctor. Vomiting also depletes sodium and calcium. And purging is a HUGE strain on your heart. That is why you heart beats like crazy while you are purging and after. This stress can lead to a heart attack. The woman you mentioned (whose name I won't say because I don't think we are allowed to) had a great impact on me, as hearing about her tragic story scared me enough to want to stop vomiting. Whether or not she had an ED, I think her story will help those who do.
