Bloating and Eating Disorders

Bloating can occur during long periods of starvation and probable excessive vomiting, laxatives, or diuretics abuse. A side effect of this is swelling over stomach or abdominal area which puts a person with an eating disorder in a destructive circle because the swelling is mistaken as fat. Can be caused by insufficient protein intake. Electrolyte imbalance and time required for your body systems to adjust are also internal problems.
