How to talk to your Doctor
If you have a history of bulimia, it’s important to talk to your doctor so that they can help you monitor long-term health risks. Physicians can help you evaluate whether you’re at risk for osteoporosis, diabetes, high cholesterol, or other conditions. Because relapse is common among people with bulimia, the more informed people you have on your medical team, the better your long-term health and recovery will be.
If you’re experiencing any of the problems listed above, or if you think you may have an eating disorder, we want to urge you to seek help. If you’re hiding your bulimia from loved ones, try to find a person you trust and talk to them about what’s going on.
At ZwavelStream Clinic we strive to provide our patients with a mixed therapeutic model of psychiatric care so that our patients can discover a renewed sense of wellness that extends beyond mental health. Our mental health clinic was inspired by the desire to provide a psychiatric unit in an environment that “de-institutionalizes and de-stigmatizes” mental health hospitals.
There’s no shame in seeking treatment for bulimia. In fact, it’s an act of great courage to take that first step and reach out. At ZwavelStream Clinic we provide a safe space for those looking for just this kind of support and guidance. So if you recognize yourself or someone you love may need help, please contact us.
