Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by an obsessive fear of gaining weight and an abnormal lack of appetite. People with anorexia nervosa may severely restrict the amount of food they eat, engage in binge eating and purging behaviors, or overexercise to compensate for food intake. As a result, they may become severely underweight and malnourished.

Anorexia nervosa is a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder that often requires medical intervention and treatment. In addition to the physical consequences of malnutrition, people with anorexia nervosa may also experience a range of psychological and emotional symptoms, such as low self-esteem, distorted body image, and an unhealthy preoccupation with weight and appearance. Treatment for anorexia nervosa typically involves a combination of psychological therapy, nutritional counseling, and medical care to address both the physical and emotional aspects of the disorder.
