Anorexia

Anorexia Nervosa is a psychological and possibly life-threatening eating disorder defined by an extremely low body weight relative to stature (this is called BMI [Body Mass Index] and is a function of an individual’s height and weight), extreme and needless weight loss, illogical fear of weight gain, and distorted perception of self-image and body. There are two common types of anorexia, which are as follows: Anorexia Nervosa Binge / Purge Type , Restrictive Anorexia Nervosa. Anorexia Nervosa continues to have the highest mortality of all psychiatric conditions. Since anorexia involves both mind and body, a team approach to treatment is often best. Those who may be involved in anorexia treatment include medical doctors, psychologists, counselors, and dieticians.

While people with Anorexia often deny having a problem, the truth is that Anorexia is a serious and potentially deadly eating disorder. Fortunately, recovery is possible. With proper treatment and support, you or someone you care about can break anorexia’s self-destructive pattern and regain health and self-confidence.
