has anyone had this? we know it's a direct result of purging for me coz i've had very recent bloods and everything was fine, but in the last 2 weeks of heavy b/p my folate has dropped out of normal ranges.

i assume it's because i'm low restricting outside of b/p and really not eating *well* (rice cakes/lite tuna/veg/fruit puree/creamed rice) and the foods with folic acid i do get i'm puking.

it's not a deficiency i've heard of in bulimics before so just wondering if anyone else has experienced it?
