Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia is characterized by weight that is significantly below what is expected for one’s sex, age, and height, as well as an intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat. Patients with anorexia are preoccupied with their body image and often do not recognize the seriousness of being underweight.
