As per I knew there is no relation between bulimia for diabetes.
Here I am giving some information about bulimia.
Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent binge eating, followed by compensatory behaviors, referred to as "purging". The most common form—practiced more than 75% of people with bulimia nervosa—is self-induced vomiting; fasting, the use of laxatives, enemas, diuretics, and overexercising are also common.

Any eating disorder can cause blood sugar disruptions; low levels (hypoglycemia) or high levels (hyperglycemia). Both can cause serious body organ complications aside from diabetes. Please seek medical assistance if you suffer from Anorexia and/or Bulimia.

Diabetes and Bulimia are a deadly duo, To say "As per I knew there is no relation between bulimia for diabetes." is incorrect.  This link http://tinyurl.com/6x93zv produced 1,510,000 hits on the subject. As you review each thread you'll see lots of distinct relationships between bulimia and diabetes.

actually, i'm not sure if it is called bulimia. whenever i eat food that is too oily or i am too full, i will feel very uncomfotable, end up i vomit about 80% of the food out. i will feel weak and dehydrated, but i always eat up some fruit or home made yoghurt right after that. is that bulimic? that was half a year ago. and just 3 days ago, there were ants in my bathroom, which make me think that i have diabetes.

i googled the web and found out that frequent urination is one of the symptom, but how many time is frequent? i went averagely 6-8 time a day. is that frequent?

i am now travelling and will get a full check up when i am back home. this are the concerns that is bothering me. thanks in advance for your comment.

You initial post asked whether diabetes and bulimia are related and you received answers. For Bulimia concerns you need to post on the Eating Disorders forum.

if you are vomiting after oily meals, you may have pancreatitis.  If it hasn't yet been done, have your doctor check your pancreas on your next visit.

i just got diagnosed w type 1 dm.  no one in my family has it.  and i'm skinny.  i DEFINITELY believe it got it from being a serious bulimic for 8 years.  the crazy highs of the sugars def put undue stress on my pancreas to where it now just doesn't work.  and my autoimmune test are negative.  so ... use common sense ... there's no other explanation. unfortunately im still bulimic.  when i check my sugars they r almost 600 mg/dl.  i do take a baseline insulin and occasionally the fast acting one.
