No specifc time: The problems associated with bulimia are dependent on the type of bulimia, its effect on the body's metabolism and general health of the sufferer. People due die from severe metabolic changes their body endure due to bulimia. Others have medical problems but do not die. They suffer from a very difficult chronic eating disorder. The most important advice is to obtain treatment.
