How is bulimia treated?

Bulimia treatment requires the consideration of the physical as well as the psychological needs of the person. Treatment may include psychological counseling and medications such as antidepressants. In many cases, treatment is undertaken by a team of medical, nutritional, and mental health professionals to evaluate the severity and meaning of the symptoms and to both prescribe and provide care. The ideal outcome of treatment is to restore physical health and normal eating patterns.
