Anorexia Nervosa

Parent Category: Eating Disorders
An eating disorder whereby one suffers from a loss of appetite resulting in self-starvation
A good way to do this would be to open up by saying that you have some off eating habits that you are worried about. Say you want to get rid of them before they become worse and before something more drastic (like a full-blown eating disorder) occurs. Simply, but clearly, explain what you do, your...
  If you feel as if you might be developing it, get help early on. Otherwise, keep a healthy, balanced diet and your weight should stay at a healthy place and there will be no need to feel fat. The biggest thing though, is be prepared to get help the second you realize you are slipping in.
Bulimic activity increases as anxiety increases. Bullying has a very negative affect on the bulimic subject. It helps to think of bingeing and purging as simply symptoms of a much deeper issue. It is an issue that can manifest itself in a multitude of ways, usually when the sufferer is at their most...
That is a very touchy subject. Do you know for a fact she is anorexic? Or does she just look thin? If you are not sure, then do not say anything. Also, if you do not know her personally, it can be very awkward and uncomfortable and actually quite rude if you just approach her. Until you have more...
  Woah, woah, woah. Firstly, anorexia nervosa is a serious psychological disease. One just doesn't "become anore[t]ic" on a whim, nor should one attempt to dangerously restrict calories for the purposes of losing weight. It's dangerous and further more, ineffective....

Anorexia Nervosa is a devastating disorder whose name was first established by Sir William Gull in 1873 and is of Greek origin: a (a, prefix of negation), n (v, link between two vowels) and orexis (appetite), thus meaning a lack of desire to eat.

While it might be a sign of a compulsive eating habit, it could just be a common routine a person has established to make life easier and mroe convienent, so it is not a definite sign of an eating disorder.
About 20% of anorexics will die from the disorder or directly from a complication that resulted for the eating disorder.

Anorexia is a diseased that is where a person does not eat food. Diseases that happen when a person does not eat food include organ failure, liver disorders (janudice, for example), and malnourishment.

It is rumored, but not totally confirmed that Nicole Nichie has anorexia.
Slow heart rate, loss of bone density, fatigue, loss of muscle,  hair loss, dehydration, liver problems, organ suffocation, and  other side-effects depending on what you are doing along with  starvation.
I have had anorexia. It is not fun AT ALL. You would think that it would be worth it, to be skinny, but it isn't. I went into a short coma for a day or two because of anorexia.
No. In fact, anorexia treatment is often very wrong and hurtful towards the individual. While it may lower the effects of the eating disorder, it often does nothing to cure them in the long run. 60% to 80% of anorexics will relapse at some point (on varying levels).
I think that you need to express how you feel to your friend. Tell her that you're worried. If this doesn't help, I suggest that you ask a parent, guardian, or other close, responsible grownup for further help.
It is not just extreme weight loss that comes with anorexia,  anorexics may also lose their hair, get bad circulation, feel cold  due to this, and have very weak bones or osteoporosis. If a woman,  they could lose their menstrual cycles too. Overall it is a very  serious disease.

It depends on the individual. Many tend to "shut out" or become isolated from friends and family and the public eye so they can keep their anorexia a secret and not have to be forced by others to eat or be uncomfortable with food around others.

Not really. Not eating because te food is digusting or filthy is a normal human reaction that is a means of survival and a way of preventing us from getting sick from what we eat.
There are actually little to no data or statistical information on the particular subject. It is believed that there is almost never a case of anorexia in a third-world country. The reason for this is because those countries are usually very poor and resources like food and water can be scarce and...
About 1 in every 250 people is predicted to suffer from anorexia.
No, anorexia is when an individual starves themselves in order to loose weight while a bulimic will purge, whether it be through throwing up, taking laxatives, or excessive exercising.
There are various mental and physical signs, and usually it will be properly diagnosed by a doctor or other emdical professional.

Anorexia can start at the on set of puberty. 95 % of those who have eating disorders are between the ages 12 and 15. 80% of 13 year old teens have tried to lose weight.
Yes, they can. People who suffer from eating disorders tend to lack vital and essentail nutrients in their diet from lack of eating properly. These missing nutrients cannot help keep nails healthy, so they can discolor, become brittle, or fall out.
