Bulimia is the excessive eating of food and we ( pharmacists & scientists ) called it bulimia nervosa. Bulimia Nervosa is not related to certain age or certain period of life as our studies indicate, so bulimia is not a common case among young adult people. The proofs on this are many such as :- 1- You see many many children, nowadays, have bulimia nervosa. 2- Bulimia is much more common in males than females. 3- You see bulimia, even, in very elderly people. 4- Bulimia is related, mainly, to a disturbance in the synthesis, generation & action of some neurotransmitters in the brain ( e.g. serotonin ) and this is not related to certain age. 5- Even young adults who may eat much can not be considered, all, as patients of bulimia nervosa because eating much in this age is a normal condition in medicine as children & young adults are the most highly active people and need higher amounts of energy than other ages and this make them, normally, need to eat more. 6- Many other reasons. ...Due all the previous reasons we can not consider that bulimia is common among young adults but we can not deny that it is actually present in this age with a certain percentage.
