Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder. It is a psychological problem leading to extreme weight loss and amenorrhea (loss of menstruation). Sufferers are terrified of becoming fat and are obsessed with losing weight.

It usually starts in the mid-teens and is far more common amongst women affecting 1 in every 150 teenage girls. Sufferers need psychological counselling to cope with the problem which is often related to an inability to come to terms with sexual maturity with all its implications.
