Kendler et al (1991) in an epidemiological study of over 2000 sets of female twins found significant comorbidity between bulimia and anorexia nervosa, alcoholism, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, phobia, and major depression.
Very often a patient with bulimia nervosa will also have some anxiety or mood disorder as well. Most commonly associated with bulimia is the incidence of anxiety, one study noted this in 75% of bulimic patients. Also prominent in bulimic patients are mood disorders, most commonly depression as well as substance abuse issues. However recent research suggest that depression is a consequence of the eating disorder itself, rather than the other way around. .
