Treatment for Bulimia
The effect of eating disorders affects the body in many harmful and negative ways.
With bulimia where patients purge or starve themselves, the body is deprived of much needed food and robbed of water, resulting in dehydration.
Considering our bodies are about 60 percent water, prolonged dehydration can lead to electrolyte imbalances that affect the heart and other organs. The dehydration and vitamin deficiencies can lead to liver and kidney problems and damage.
Additionally, bulimia can cause anemia, and low levels of sodium, potassium, and magnesium in the body.
How Vida-Flo Works
With IV infusion therapy, Vida-Flo can rapidly rehydrate and replenish the electrolytes and other nutrients that have been lost due to purging.
In our 1000mL Lactated Ringers we provide the electrolytes and fluids necessary to counteract the effects of the disease. One bag of fluids is equivalent to drinking 2.5 gallons of water. Additionally, our intravenously delivered vitamins can help return the body to a more normal, balanced state and 100% of the vitamins are delivered to the bloodstream. It is important to note that bulimia is a problem that must be addressed by mental health professionals and physicians trained in its treatment.
Our services can attend to the short-term effects of the disease but will not provide treatment towards its cure nor diagnosis.
