Throwing up after eating food, Is it Normal?

Dear Ask The Doctor:
What is it call when you eat food and right after you done you throw it up? Is it normal to throw up everyday?


What you are referring to is bulimia. This involves periods of eating a larger amount of food than most people followed by compensatory behaviour like vomiting or using laxatives. If vomiting after food happens more than twice a week for 3 months it is considered abnormal and requires a psychologist/psychiatric evaluation.
