Hello and thank you for your question:
The short answer to your question is, yes, you probably do have an eating disorder, and left untreated it can kill you. Chances are that the autopsy on Michael Jackson will show that what ultimately killed him was anorexia, with severe electrolyte imbalances causing cardiac arrest. The question of drugs may be irrelevant. Once a person has lost enough weight, they will not be able to recover and will die. He was extremely thin and had lost his hair due to anorexia. We don’t know if he was bulimic.
Unfortunately, if you are unwilling to tell your doctor, you may as well be lying to her. If she is a doctor, she may have figured out that you have an eating disorder and is just waiting for you to tell her the truth. Just the fact that you are throwing up will signal that you probably have bulimia.
Please, before you get into trouble with your body, tell her and ask her for help. That is why she is there. Bulimia is extremely dangerous and can cause fatal hemorrhaging, loss of tooth enamel and destruction of your gastrointestinal tract. It’s not too late.
I hope this helps,
Dr. Diana Walcutt
