Clinical features and diagnostic criteria of bulimia nervosa

Based on the results of the clinical follow-up study of 41 female patients, diagnostic criteria of bulimia nervosa that should be used in clinical studies are suggested as follows: (1) presence of anorexia nervosa or transitory amenorrhea in the premorbid period; (2) eating attacks with losing of the control over food consumption not less than twice a week during 3 months; (3) compensatory behavior in the form of spontaneous vomiting, abuse of purgative and diuretic medications etc; (4) fear of obesity; (5) cycloid affective changes with higher impulsivity, reduction of the control over primitive drives and/or expressed anxiety disorders; inclination to alcohol and drug abuse and nicotine dependence; (6) changes of the body mass index; (7) absence of amenorrhea. The disease dynamics is characterized by formation of the pathological cycle "diet - overeating - compensatory behavior" on the background of cyclothymic affective disorders. Two types of bulimia nervosa - with and without other drive disorders - have been singled out.
