It's definitely possible here are the symptoms to keep an eye out for

Signs of Anorexia include:

  • Refusal to maintain body weight at or above a minimally normal weight for age and height. Weight lossleading to maintenance of body weight less than 85% of that expected; or failure to make expected weight gain during period of growth, leading to body weight less than 85% of what is expected. See calculation of Body Mass Index.
  • Distorted view of one's body weight or shape. Undue influence of body weight or shape on self evaluation, or denial of the seriousness of the current low body weight.

What should you do if a friend has anorexia?

If a friend has anorexia, firstly do not try and make them eat. It will make them worse, if they want to eat they will. Ask your friend if they have told anybody else (if signs of their anorexia are not showing) and if they have, ask them if they had spoken to a professional about getting help and support. You really do need to push your friend into getting help. He/she will be less likely to succeed knowing that they are not getting full support from their family and friends.

What can you do to help a friend to not start anorexia?

Tell them that they'll slowly become weaker and weaker and will eventually collapse or have a heart attack and die. They got to know that Anorexia is a disease, once you reach Anorexia it's very hard to turn back. I mean once you get there, you will get help from parents and medical care, but the anorexia will be playing your mind. Just keep an eye out for them or tell their parents what your friend is wanting to do so that friend can get help immediately. I'm a recovered anorexic.
