i went to an ent doctor a couple weeks ago to get my ears checked out. he checked my nose and throat too and told me i had big tonsils. my mom thinks it's just a hereditary thing. (she had her's removed as a child and my brother had his adnoids and almost his tonsils removed) i think it may be related to my ED. but i don't know how that would effect it. is that even possible?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Big tonsils are due to recurrent bacterial or viral infections and bulimia nervosa.
If you are suffering from eating disorder then it would be the most probable reason.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
