So recently my 17 year old DD has been diagnoised with an eating disorder and I'm very scared and worried for her. She recently told me that yesterday when we went to a family party, she binged a lot . Then she went upstairs and purged . Today she told me on top of that that she took 9 diurectics yesterday. I'm just so worried for my DD and I don't know what to do?

Get her in therapy asap. Maybe take her to a doctor and evaluate her and explain to her the consequences this disorder might have.

I'm sorry, you have to be devastated.   Go find a support group to help you thru this.  You will be needing to talk and with others who understand.  

I'm sorry.

Was she bragging, crying, laughing? How did she say it? Have you thought about putting her in a in an inpatient program?

Inpatient care.

You cannot talk someone out of an eating disorder by explaining the consequences. They know the consequences. That is why they do it. Seek professional help immediately. I work at an inpatient unit and I would not recommend that as a first resort. Seek help with a doctor who can refer you to a prefessional who specializes in eating disorders. Best Wishes!

The organ damage alone from anorexia or bulimia is astounding not to mention a host of other issues. I agree with what pps have said, inpatient therapy. Good luck

Get her therapy and keep a close eye, but try no to be reactionary. Also give her as many ways as possible to keep her life as stable as possible - many eating disorders spring from a desire to control something rather than a particular appearance issue.

She was just talking normally with her head down.
