In brief: Risk to baby

Bulimia deprives the growing baby of needed nutrients, and may seriously endanger both mother and child.

In brief: Risky

Bulimia can cause a woman to lose large amounts of potassium, which can affect her heart function and cause arrhythmias.
In the worst case, a woman can die from this. It also affects her overall health and nutrition during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor and get help if you are pregnant and are bulimic.
