Do I Need To Starve Before Endoscopy
Gnawing and starving feeling every 3 hours,what could it be ?Endoscopy was fine , thyroid and glicemy are still " normal " I can't avoid to eat .thx
3-4 weeks: It depends on what you mean from starving. Decreased food intake may not produce any bad effects(it has some good effects on your body). But total starvation will give you discomfort from hunger pains and also weakness and sometimes mild headaches. But there is very little reason to starve yourself in the first place! ...Read more
Is purging still classed as bulimic behavior if it does not involve a binge before hand? I.E starving, normal meal consumed and then purged? Thanks
Yes, bulimic: If you're purposefully vomiting the food you eat then yes this is bulimia. Some people who starve themselves (anorexics, for instance) also purge. This is a serious eating disorder, and this needs treatment, please see your primary care physician to make sure you have not damaged yourself physically. There are psychologists and psychiatrists specializing in helping people with eating disorders. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My doctor says that i get stomachaches because of starving myself, which isn't true! he advised me to eat before going to bed! is that even possible?
Stomach pains: I will have to partially disagree. If u are starving yourself then your body reminds you to feed it by "growling" which may be painful. If your stomach hurts in the morning because u haven't eaten in 6-8 hours then that's normal and eating before going to bed may not necessarily change that. Eat a meal higher in protein than carbos 1-2 hours before bed and your stomach may improve. ...Read more
