Bulimia Test... A Quiz to Assess Bulimia Symptoms
Complete this test to get an assessment on the probability that you or someone you care about is displaying signs of bulimia. All answers supplied here are anonymous
Medical ReviewerSophie Abber, MS
Who Is This Bulimia Quiz For?
Could you or someone you love be suffering from bulimia?
Below is a list of questions that relate to life experiences common among people who have been diagnosed with bulimia nervosa. Please read each question carefully, and indicate how often you have experienced the same or similar challenges in the past few months.
If you are taking the quiz for someone else you should provide answers you think they'd supply. Ideally you'll have the loved one complete the test themselves and take the results to a doctor or licensed professional.
This quiz is NOT a diagnostic tool. Mental health disorders can only be diagnosed by a licensed mental health provider or doctor. But Psycom believes assessments can be a valuable first step toward getting treatment.
Your privacy is important to us. All results are completely anonymous.

What are the symptoms of bulimia?
A person with bulimia eats excessive amounts of food and then purges their body of the food. They may do this by vomiting the food they just ate, by exercising, or by using laxatives, enemas, or diuretics. Often, the person eats and purges in secrecy. They may feel a lack of control as they binge-eat, and then are relieved of negative emotions once their stomachs are empty again. This condition has many symptoms.1
Both physical and emotional symptoms occur with bulimia. Among the physical symptoms are irregular menstrual periods, weakness, exhaustion, sore throat, bloodshot eyes, and heartburn. 2 Erosion of both the teeth and the esophagus can occur with bulimia accompanied by vomiting, explains Ashley Jacobs, RDN.
“The person is very preoccupied with food, weight, and eating,” she says. “She may be so preoccupied with food that it is the only thing on her mind and she can experience social isolation.”
The emotional symptoms of bulimia range from an intense fear of gaining weight and a preoccupation with body image to depression or mood swings and withdrawing socially from family and friends. The person makes frequent visits to the bathroom, especially after meals, and may engage in excessive exercising or extreme physical training. She may feel out of control and guilty or shameful about eating.2
How does Binge-Eating Disorder differ from bulimia and anorexia nervosa?
People with an eating disorder tend to take their concerns with weight to the extreme.1 Bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, and Binge-Eating Disorder are all eating disorders, which are abnormal eating habits that are bad for your health, explains Monica Bearden, RD, LD, CSSD, Consultant in Sports Nutrition at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital in Houston, Texas.
When a person has anorexia nervosa, they think they are fat even though they are very thin and are restricting their eating to the point of starvation. Individuals with bulimia consume excessive amounts of food and then purge. And people with Binge-Eating Disorder have out-of-control eating patterns, but they do not purge.1 With binge eating, the eating is done in secret and it must occur at least once a week for three months, says Ashley Jacobs, RDN. Weight loss is not associated with binge eating the way it is with anorexia nervosa.
How does bulimia affect the body?
Bulimia takes a steep toll on the body. Dehydration is one effect, says Ashley Jacobs, RDN. “The person may become low in potassium, which can cause an irregular heartbeat,” she says.
Bulimia also has an adverse effect on the organs and the heart, says Monica Bearden, RD, LD, CSSD, Consultant in Sports Nutrition at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital in Houston, Texas. “Bulimia is very hard on overall health as it can cause metabolic acidosis,” she explains. "This is a condition where too much acid accumulates in the body.”
From a gastrointestinal standpoint, it can cause bloating, gas, and constipation. It causes damage to the enamel on the teeth. “It really impacts the whole person,” Bearden says. “It causes brain fog, in which a person can’t think straight.”
Many people with bulimia are purging in order to lose weight. But this does not necessarily happen, she says. “Bulimia throws off your hormones and your overall metabolism,” she says. “It slows down your metabolism. And the person does not necessarily lose weight.”
What are familial factors that influence the risk of bulimia?
As with other eating disorders, if someone in your immediate family has an eating disorder, you are at an increased risk for having one yourself, says Ashley Jacobs, RDN: “If a parent is body-conscious and is dieting, or if you see that Mom is purging after meals, that definitely puts you at risk.”
Girls from an abusive family may be at an increased risk for developing bulimia, says Monica Bearden, RD, LD, CSSD, Consultant in Sports Nutrition at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital in Houston, Texas. “These girls are often vulnerable and have low self-esteem,” she says. “People’s opinions can have a profound effect on them and if they hear that they need to lose weight, this puts them at risk of developing an eating disorder. I see this often with athletes in weight-dependent sports.”
What does the eating cycle of bulimia have in common with addictive drugs?
The outcome behaviors are very different, and a different type of personality gravitates toward bulimia versus drug abuse, says Monica Bearden, RD, LD, CSSD, Consultant in Sports Nutrition at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital in Houston, Texas.
“The outcome behaviors do not overlap,” she says. “It is more of an addictive personality trait they share. But the person with bulimia typically gets good grades and is a perfectionist, which is not necessarily the case with someone who abuses drugs.”
People who have a substance use disorder as well as those who live with bulimia may share certain personality traits, Bearden says. “Both may take things to the extreme,” she says. “However, people with bulimia are typically perfectionists and hard workers. You would not suspect that they had an eating disorder.”
A substance use disorder and bulimia can elicit similar behaviors in an individual who lives with one of these conditions, says Ashley Jacobs, RDN. “These behaviors are being used as a coping skill,” she says. “The person needs to find healthier coping skills, which is why it is important to find a therapist with an expertise in addiction.”

Do not confuse illusions with hallucinations. Illusions force a person to perceive real objects and phenomena in distorted form, while in hallucinations a person feels something that in reality does not exist.
Examples of illusions:
- the pattern on the wallpaper seems to be an interweaving of snakes or worms;
