Bulimia is a mental health condition that takes the form of an eating disorder. Bulimia sufferers eat lots of food to the point where they binge excessively, before making themselves sick, doing excessive amounts of exercise or using laxatives to try and prevent themselves from putting on weight. Bulimia is most common in young women, especially in those who are in their mid to late teenage years.
Symptoms of bulimia include binge eating and purging on food, a consuming fear of putting on weight, body dysmorphia, fatigue, mood swings and trouble sleeping. Symptoms can be hard to notice, as those with eating disorders often display secretive behaviour. Other symptoms involve dental issues from regular vomiting, halitosis, constipation, irregular periods (in women), brittle fingernails, dry skin and hair breakage. Long term bulimia can lead to kidney problems, osteoporosis and other complications resulting in organ failure.
Like other eating disorders, bulimia can be treated through counselling and self-help, often through an eating disorder treatment specialist.
Bulimia, like any eating disorder, is a complicated and difficult condition to understand and overcome. If you have previously struggled or currently struggle with bulimia, you may be concerned about where you can be accepted for life insurance cover. Bulimia is considered to be a pre-existing medical condition, therefore some insurers can be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for bulimia life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. An insurer is likely to ask you for some further details about your current health and the severity of your bulimia in order to determine whether they can offer you cover. iLi can help you find the right insurer for your circumstances through a free comparison service.
Premiums for bulimia life insurance can be offered on standard terms if you have successfully recovered from bulimia, have no associated symptoms or relapse, and live a healthy life with a normal BMI. You may have exclusions placed on your policy or you may have to pay more for premiums if you are still suffering from bulimia, or if you have recently received treatment for a health complication as a result of your condition.
Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLi is the best place to find the right bulimia life insurance specialist.
You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if your condition is severe, you have a very low weight and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk, or cover may be declined.

Critical illness cover for bulimia sufferers
Insurance companies deal with applications for critical illness cover in the same way that they do for life insurance. If you have bulimia and would like to apply for critical illness cover, an insurer is likely to request more information about your circumstances, including your current health and BMI, the point at which your weight was at its lowest, your mental health status and details of any counselling you have had (and whether it was successful). Depending on your level of risk and health, you could be offered cover at either standard terms, or non-standard terms with higher premiums. A GP report is likely to be requested.
