In brief: Tough call
Both bulimia and anorexia can place enormous strain on body functions--to the point of death.
Also, some people have both, so-call bulimerxia. Bulimia entails gorging then purging--usually vomiting or laxitives; both can mess up electrolytes, leading to heart problems. Anorexia is starvation thru calorie restriction and/or exercise. Once fat is gone, the body feeds on muscle, including heart.
