Risk factors discussion:
Individuals with bulimia are often characterized
as having a hard time dealing with and controlling impulses, stress,
and anxieties. Bulimia nervosa can and often does occur

develop bulimia. (Source: excerpt from Fact Sheet Eating Disorders: NWHIC)
About risk factors:
Risk factors for Bulimia nervosa are factors that do not seem
to be a direct cause of the disease,
but seem to be associated in some way.
Having a risk factor for Bulimia nervosa
makes the chances
of getting a condition higher but does
not always lead to Bulimia nervosa.
Also, the absence of any risk factors
or having a protective factor does not necessarily
guard you against getting Bulimia nervosa.
For general information and a list of risk factors,
