Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder found mostly aiming young girls and is characterized by uncontrolled bingeing, followed by vomiting, excessive exercising and laxatives. Social, psychological and biological factors can contribute to this illness. Lady Diana was the victim of this eating disorder. She was the center of attention for media and public and felt the ignorance of her husband. She became obsessed about her body shape and weight. Her marital life was the reason for her illness. So, Bulimia should be treated carefully and special attention should be given to the eating patterns, false beliefs about appearance and emotional issues should be fairly solved
