PREVENIR LA ANOREXIA XXII Congreso de los Médicos de Familia de España (SEMERGEN). Según Bernabé Galán Sánchez, especialista en Medicina de Familia la prevención es estar alerta . Los padres, profesores, sanitarios, clubes juveniles, amigos, etc., cada uno desde el lugar que le corresponde, deben estar atentos a las dificultades que aparecen durante la adolescencia , ayudando a que los jóvenes desarrollen las capacidades personales que les permitan resolver los conflictos de forma saludable. A ésta conducta de la anorexia se llega en muchos casos después de haber padecido obesidad en la infancia, unido a la vida sedentaria ante la televisión o videoconsola, es recomendable hacer en éstos caso ejercicio y una dieta controlada por personal experto. Es importante educar sobre la enfermedad y sus peligros a los sujetos en riesgo y sus familias, sin embargo, poco se puede hacer sobre los estereotipos culturales porque la consecución de un cuerpo atractivo mueve grandes intereses económicos. Es esencial si aparece la enfermedad hacer un diagnóstico precoz comenzando un tratamiento efectivo en la dieta, peso, cogniciones y relaciones personales. Suelen ser niñas mayores de 14 años que se quejan de su aspecto físico, reducen el consumo de alimentos, especialmente de grasas y calorías, se vuelven cada vez más introvertidas, y juzgan su vida sobre la imagen corporal, la belleza o el triunfo. Una mayor concentración en los estudios pero con más dificultades que antes, cambios en los hábitos de comer, el aumentos exagerado del ejercicio físico, el abuso de diuréticos y laxantes e irregularidades en la menstruación, frío y estreñimiento, son comportamientos que sugieren anorexia.

Anorexia Statistics
Anorexia statistics are grim. According to Anorexia Nervosa and Related Eating Disorders, Inc., without treatment, up to 20% of people with serious eating disorders die. With treatment, 2 – 3% of people with anorexia die. Statistics on anorexia show that mortality rates from anorexia are the highest of any psychological disorder. Anorexia statistics show that with treatment, only 60% make a full recovery. About 20% make a partial recovery, meaning that they may be able to hold a job and maintain some superficial relationships but remain very focused on food and weight. They may continue to abuse laxatives or diet pills. They remain underweight. The final 20% stay dangerously underweight. They are seen frequently in emergency rooms, mental health clinics, inpatient hospital units, and eating disorder treatment programs.
People with anorexia can suffer a number of potentially fatal medical conditions, including heart disease, kidney and liver disease, and potassium and magnesium imbalances that can lead to heart failure. In addition, they often suffer from osteoporosis (thinning, brittle bones), low blood pressure, ulcers, dizziness and fainting, irregular heart rhythm, headaches, nausea, and a myriad of other physical problems. Anorexic statistics indicate that they also experience anxiety, depression, and other psychological problems as well. Who Gets Anorexia?

Anorexia Nervosa in Hematologic Disorders Introduction In addition, pathophysiologic and clinical aspects of medical, endocrine and nutritional abnormalities in anorexia nervosa have been reported (133).
Gastrointestinal Disorder Crisp (134) has reviewed gastrointestinal disturbance in anorexia nervosa, noting that anorectics frequently complain of abdominal pain and distention. Chronic anorexia nervosa can distort the gastrointestinal tract, producing distention, then disuse atrophy followed by distention. In some cases, cystic ovarian disease is the cause of the abdominal discomfort. In one patient, pseudoacute abdomen was manifested by anorexia, with a 50 pound weight loss, intermittent abdominal pain, and vomiting. A duodenal jejunostomy was unsuccessful in diminishing weight loss and vomiting (140). Anorexia nervosa should be considered in a patient with weight loss, abdominal pain, and vomiting.

What is anorexia nervosa?
A person with anorexia nervosa (an-uh-RECK-see-uh nur-VOH-suh), often called anorexia, has an intense fear of gaining weight. Someone with anorexia thinks about food a lot and limits the food she or he eats, even though she or he is too thin. Anorexia is more than just a problem with food. It's a way of using food or starving oneself to feel more in control of life and to ease tension, anger, and anxiety. Most people with anorexia are female. An anorexic:
  • Has a low body weight for her or his height Resists keeping a normal body weight Has an intense fear of gaining weight Thinks she or he is fat even when very thin Misses 3 menstrual periods in a row (for girls/women who have started having their periods)

Already Perfect
NOT A PRO ANOREXIA SITE! A PRO RECOVERY SITE! Last Updated On June 1, 2003 I would like to take a moment and reflect on all the good and the bad that has happened to my life; events that I share in common with so many other people. Although we all come into this world on our own path, I think there are many similar affairs that we all struggle with. Becoming happy and content with ourselves is the hardest since we are all our own toughest critics. Even at the age of 15, 37, and 68 people are still trying to find who they truly are. I too am still searching for the balance of body, mind, and spirit. I have always felt that I can achieve anything that I set my mind to. Often, this leads to over achieving and stress upon myself. In the event of hunting to find my balance of self and family, and then throwing fun, accomplishments, and work into the mix, it becomes difficult for me to be easy on myself. I push until I am satisfied, which never seems to come soon enough. I hope that each of you are able to find your balance sooner than I. Until that happens, realize in your heart that you need not impress anyone or stress over the small things, because each and every one of us was born into this world Already Perfect. So, what did you think?
