Understanding Anorexia Nervosa
Anorexia nervosa, perhaps the most commonly recognized eating disorder, involves an intense fear of gaining weight and/or distorted body image despite being underweight. Anorexia nervosa is associated with restrictive food intake, preoccupation with calories, and compulsive over-exercising.
The National Eating Disorder Associate (NEDA) estimates .9% of women and .3% of men experience anorexia at some point in his or her lifetime. Anorexia Nervosa is associated with low body weight causing the following: moderate to severe malnourishment, low body temperature, low blood pressure, electrolyte imbalances, amenorrhea, fainting, fatigue, loss of bone density, heart muscle deterioration, organ failure, and possible death if left untreated. Up to 50 percent of people with anorexia nervosa also have co-occurring mental health concerns such as, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and more.
