What is Purging Disorder?

Purging disorder is characterized by purging activities such as vomiting, excessive exercise, laxatives, or fasting to lose weight or obtain a specific body shape. It is different from bulimia in that no binge eating occurs before the purge and from anorexia in that the person isn’t underweight.
