In brief: Trauma victims
Emotional, physical and sexual abuse predisposes folks to using bulimia as a way of coping with that trauma.
Younger people are more likely to become bulimic and it can start as early as the onset of puberty. Females are more prone than males and young adolescents and young women by far are the largest group. Abuse severity doesn't correlate with bulimia severity. Some bulimics have no trauma hi.
