Can you die from vomiting?

Topics: HealthDeath & Dying

Answers

A person can die from vomiting too much. If a person becomes dehydrated from vomiting, the body's electrolytes can become imbalanced which interferes with heart rhythms among other things.

People do not die from vomiting alone. Some people have died of a heart attack while vomiting and some have died from dehydration and illnesses accompanied by vomiting.

Yes, if you puke for too long you can become dehydrated and die.
