Are PCOS and Bulimia Connected?
PCOS may promote bulimia -- where you binge eat and then purge (by vomiting or laxative use). Bulimic women with PCOS appear to be more sensitive to male hormones. Unfortunately, PCOS women have high levels of male hormones. These hormones stimulate appetite and impair impulse control. A solution is to reduce these hormones with a special diet.
