What is Anorexia

Anorexia nervosa (or simply Anorexia) is an eating disorder characterized by a refusal to maintain a minimal healthy body weight and engage in restrictive behaviors. These behaviors can include:

  • Excessive dieting
  • Diuretic abuse
  • Insulin abuse
  • Excessive exercise
  • Extremely picky eating

Anorexia is Deadly

Anorexia is more serious than most people are aware. In fact, anorexia has a higher mortality rate than any other mental disorder, including depression. Anorexics also often suffer with depression, severe medical complications and substance abuse. It is a serious disorder and should not be seen as a phase that one grows out of. Without proper treatment anorexia can easily claim lives. The longer one struggles with anorexia, the greater the chances that they will lose the battle.

If you or a loved one suffers from anorexia, getting the right eating disorder treatment is vital.
