Anorexia is an eating disorder where people starve themselves. Anorexia usually begins in young people around the onset of puberty. Individuals suffering from anorexia have extreme weight loss. Weight loss is usually 15% below the person's normal body weight. People suffering from anorexia are very skinny but are convinced that they are overweight. Weight loss is obtained by many ways. Some of the common techniques used are excessive exercise, intake of laxatives and not eating. Anorexics have an intense fear of becoming fat. Their dieting habits develop from this fear. Anorexia mainly affects adolescent girls. People with anorexia continue to think they are overweight even after they become extremely thin, are very ill or near death. Often they will develop strange eating habits such as refusing to eat in front of other people. Sometimes the individuals will prepare big meals for others while refusing to eat any of it. The disorder is thought to be most common among people of higher socioeconomic classes and people involved in activities where thinness is especially looked upon, such as dancing, theater, and distance

of measures parents took to rescue their teenage daughter from anorexia within six month.......
ANOREXIA TREATMENT: A calorie controlled recovery treatment programme for a complete cure from anorexia nervosa in just six months. In March 2003 our then 13 year old daughter, Helen, was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, at which point she was on the verge of being emaciated. Her BMI was approximately 15. My initial reluctance to accept this diagnosis was dispelled towards the end of the month when Helen became severely dehydrated and suffered a complete nervous breakdown as the anorexia finally took total control of both her mind and body. It may sound melodramatic, but it was as if she had become possessed. Helen’s reaction, when encouraged to drink a glass water in order to ease the stomach cramps caused by the dehydration, was uncharacteristically aggressive and resulted in an hysterical screaming fit which unnerved both myself and Fiona, my ex-wife. Helen flew into a rage and began to scream: “IT'S WEIGHT, IT'S WEIGHT, IT'S WEIGHT!” At this point, we realised that we had no control over Helen whatsoever. However, by June 2003, only three months later, Fiona and myself had broken the illness and Helen was able to return to school. By September 2003 Helen had attained her perfect weight and the illness had been completely eradicated from her psyche. By January 2004, Helen was signed off by the adolescent mental health unit, her psychiatrist commenting that it was “one of the quickest recoveries” from mental illness that he had ever seen.

I have fielded questions about " diabulimia " from coworkers and friends. From the sound of these terms, it appears that there are a lot of new and recently discovered eating disorders. I certainly did not hear the word drunkorexia in medical school.

Heb ik Anorexia?
Als je anorexia hebt, zul je jezelf in veel van de onderstaande punten herkennen. Als je aan veel van de genoemde criteria voldoet, en zeker wanneer je de eerder genoemde lichamelijke verschijnselen herkent, is het belangrijk dat je hulp zoekt. Maar ook als je nog geen duidelijke lichamelijke klachten hebt, is het verstandig in te grijpen. Hoe eerder je hulp zoekt, hoe groter de kans op genezing.
Je plant je voedselinname heel zorgvuldig en raakt in paniek wanneer je je daar niet aan kunt houden
Je weegt jezelf veelvuldig, vaak wel een paar keer per dag
Je raakt in paniek wanneer je bent aangekomen, al is het maar een pond
Je voelt je sterk wanneer je niet eet
Je stemming wordt grotendeels bepaald door wat je eet en wat je weegt
Wanneer je volgens jezelf teveel eet (hoewel het misschien niet zoveel is), en 'verboden' voedsel, moet het er weer uit
Je gebruikt hiervoor laxeermiddelen, of
je probeert het eten met overgeven er weer uit te gooien
Je doet veel aan lichaamsbeweging en raakt in paniek als je naar jouw idee niet genoeg hebt gedaan
Je probeert sociale situaties waarin gegeten wordt te vermijden en verzint smoesjes om maar niet te hoeven eten Je hebt last van de lichamelijke verschijnselen die in de paragraven over Gevolgen van anorexia zijn genoemd voor anorexia, zoals het wegblijven van de menstruatie, koude voeten e.d.

Fresh Perspectives on anorexia/bulimia
In the battle against anorexia/bulimia, individuals, the community and social institutions, are either anorexia/bulimia-supporting or fighting against anorexia/bulimia - there is no middle ground. To treat anorexia/bulimia as a problem merely about food, to believe in a genetic basis of behavior, to simply see the problem as an individual pathology, or to treat the problem only through pharmaceuticals, is extremely pro-anorexic/bulimic. These strategies help to maintain the problem by denying the scope of the problem. Pro-anorexic/bulimic ideas would have us believe anorexia/bulimia exists in a vacuum: it is a freak of nature, that it is merely a case of bad genes, the temperment of spoiled, little, rich girls. To take a stance against the problem - to be anti-anorexic/bulimic - is to realize there is a definite and necessary place for medicine in the treatment of anorexia/bulimia. It is also important to realize there are a multitude of social factors living at the very heart of the problem.

ANOREXIA: Warning to parents, my pre-adolescent daughter developed anorexia after seeing it on a television program.
She then very gradually over a period of months started restricting certain foods. It started with potato chips, then sweets, then hot dogs, then pizza, and then anything a 9 1/2 year old considered junk food. My wife was constantly asking her why she was doing this. Her reply was, "I just want to eat healthy". It was pretty difficult to argue with this, as she was eating healthy, and still eating lots of what she considered healthy foods. This went on for sometime with no weightloss. However, we were concerned at how rigid she was on this self imposed diet. She simply said goodbye to a food, and never looked back.
Our pediatrician thought it was probably a "phase", kids this age like to take a little more control of their lives. He advised us to monitor her weight and keep an eye on it. We brought up the possibility of anorexia to a psychiatrist friend who knew our daughter well. The psychiatrist friend said no, your daughter is so popular and happy, she has always been a leader. Your family life is stable and loving. At that point the medical professionals we knew simply could not believe it possible.
By November she was starting to lose weight and we began to notice behavior changes. She was diagnosed with anorexia on December 4th. February 18th our little girl was put into the hospital for almost 3 weeks. We are living in the darkness this disorder brings to a family. We live from meal to meal. We do have a great team of professionals, headed by a psychologist who has specialized in eating disorders for the past 20 years. He has had excellent results with children. Our hope is that because she is a pre-adolescent, and we were able to identify the problem and get help quickly, she will be able to work through this and return to her happy, loving self. In the meantime we are living in this hell, called anorexia.

Anorexia Nervosa
People who intentionally starve themselves suffer from an eating disorder called anorexia nervosa. The disorder, which usually begins in young people around the time of puberty, involves extreme weight lossat least 15 percent below the individual's normal body weight. Many people with the disorder look emaciated but are convinced they are overweight. Sometimes they must be hospitalized to prevent starvation. People with anorexia typically starve themselves, even though they suffer terribly from hunger pains. One of the most frightening aspects of the disorder is that people with anorexia continue to think they are overweight even when they are bone-thin. For reasons not yet understood, they become terrified of gaining any weight. Food and weight become obsessions. For some, the compulsiveness shows up in strange eating rituals or the refusal to eat in front of others. It is not uncommon for people with anorexia to collect recipes and prepare gourmet feasts for family and friends, but not partake in the meals themselves. They may adhere to strict exercise routines to keep off weight. Loss of monthly menstrual periods is typical in women with the disorder. Men with anorexia often become impotent.
Specific Symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa:
A person who suffers from this disorder is typically characterized by their refusal to maintain a body weight which is consistent with their build, age and height. Specifically, a person's

The victim is obsessed with being thin and starves herself in an attempt to avoid weight gain. Although she may be severely emaciated, an anorexic will often see herself as overweight. This distorted self-image complicates the already existing obsession. The victim will become more and more malnourished as she tries to reach her unattainable goal, all the while thinking she is still too fat. Anorexia, however, is rarely a mere attempt to be beautiful; it is usually a sign of an underlying mental illness such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, or other anxiety disorders. Although anyone can develop anorexia, it usually affects teenage girls.
