..Affects? Effects...?

WHat 'side effects' are you living/suferring with from your ED?

Mine are my teeth. No matter what work I get done, it's never enough. I need so many root canals it's not even funny. Soon, I'll be returning to my dear friend the dentist to continue on some work. I seriously at the point I want them all pulled - give me dentures!

my teeth, the way my bowels work or rather the lack of normal working. Not that this is a serious side affect, but i am several inches shorter than anyone in my family, because i had such nutrition deficiency during the time i was supposed to be growing, i didn't get to my normal pre-determined genetic family height of 5'7" (which is the next shortest in my family) for females - i'm more like 5'4" on a good day lol. it is also thought that my auto immune disorder (sle) was triggered much sooner than it would have been. I also wonder if my pregnancy induced diabetes was due to my history of an e.d. as i didn't meet any of the 'normal' criteria for getting it. But at the end of the day - i'm glad i made it through - even with all the side effects i have. i'm alive and health'ish today - with a wonderful family - and for that i am very grateful.

Teeth--I wasn't much for purging (except through exercise) but the lack of good nutrition for several years has caused me to have several cracked teeth and need expensive caps; also suspect that the nutrient deficiencies/anxiety I had when my ED was in full swing caused me to start clenching and grinding my teeth at night when I sleep and this doesn't help matters (I still can't stop the clenching even though I've been in recovery for years)

toenails - Constant running and overexercise has caused me to lose nails more than once, develop ugly nail fungus (which can't be treated while suffering an ED, pregnant or breastfeeding), I don't think I'll ever have nice toenails again and am often embarrassed to wear sandals

I don't fart.
Its not a fart.

My teeth aren't the greatest either but brushing before and after really help. Try using a floride mouth wash.

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I put the "D" in lysdexia

Sanity is a cozy lie.

my teeth...they are totally see-through and my front one looks like it has a crack in it. The dentist said I have lost alot of enamel and will be more prone to cavities now (never had one EVER).

Other than that, everything has now pretty much turned back to normal now that I am prego. But for a long time I was losing a lot of hair.

Hair loss and my teeth I would say. Also bone weakness from being deprived of nutrients.
