In brief: Electrolytes
If you are vomiting often, you may develop deficiencies in electrolytes which could affect your heart rhythm (at worst) and your general health (best case if this is all).
Working with a physician who can monitor these and replete if necessary is important. On a broader scope though, it is a serious eating disorder that is very treatable and your overall quality of life can improve greatly.

In brief: Death
One thing that's real bad that could happen is something called a: mallory-weiss tear, which has to do with the extreme vomiting putting pressure on the area where the stomach and esophagus connect, and this area tearing apart.
One can then bleed to death.
