Do I have to be anorexic to be bulimic?

Not at all

Anorexia
But this need not worry you. These are both eating disorders and an expert will know how to tell the difference. Briefly, bulimics can present with a wide range of BMIs but they do eat. They often eat more than they feel okay with and purge in some way to fix it. Most importantly, it is a serious for health and a good idea to get it behind you. Find good help - it's there and it works if you try.

Is it possible for somebody to be both anorexic and bulimic?

Yes

Open-uri20120729-26130-8mxhxf
Yes -- some people with anorexia not only severely control the amount of food they eat, but also purge through vomiting, using laxatives & diuretics, etc. They may also exercise way out of proportion to the amount needed for enjoyment or physical health. They don't usually binge on large quantities of food before making themselves vomit, however.

Anorexic/bulimic but I still have stretch marks, please help me?

See a dermatologist.

Stretching
If your stretch marks are pretty severe, you could see a dermatologist to discuss treatment options. There are a variety of over-the-counter creams and ointments that may help. Bio-Oil is one that is advertised as helping to decrease stretch marks.

I used to be anorexic and bulimic and I am afraid I am going to revert back if I don't lose these last 15-20 lbs.?

Healthy weight loss

Open-uri20121228-25077-1q9q0n3
If needed, there are much healthier ways to lose weight than reverting to anorexia or bulimia. Please see your physician and/or therapist before you relapse. You need to help yourself stay healthy. Good luck to you.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

What can they look for in a blood test and ekg for bulimics or purging anorexics?

Many things

Purging
Electrolyte abnormalities would be the most immediate concern that would show up in both blood tests and EKG. Blood tests may be used to evaluate the nutritional status as well and any other disorders that may show up after history, physical examination and results of initial tests.
