Home  List of Disease  Anorexia nervosa

Disease Name:Anorexia nervosa
Anorexia nervosa
Alternate Names:Anorexia
Virus Name:It is clear that there is no single cause for anorexia and that it stems from a mixture of biological, social, and psychological factors. Current research is usually focused on explaining existing factors and uncovering new causes. However, there is substantial debate over how much each of the known causes contributes to the development of anorexia. In particular, the contribution of perceived media pressure on women to be thin has been especially contentious
Treatment:The first line treatment for anorexia is usually focused on immediate weight gain, particularly with those who have particularly serious conditions that require hospitalization. In particularly serious cases, this may be done as an instinctive hospital treatment under mental health law, where such legislation exists. In the majority of cases, however, people with anorexia are treated as outpatients, with input from physicians, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and other mental health professionals.
Description:Anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric illness that describes an eating disorder characterized by extremely low body weight and body image distortion with an obsessive fear of gaining weight. Individuals with anorexia nervosa are known to control body weight commonly through the means of voluntary starvation, excessive exercise, or other weight control measures such as diet pills or diuretic drugs. While the condition primarily affects adolescent females, approximately 10% of people with the diagnosis are male. Anorexia nervosa, involving neurobiological, psychological, and sociological components, is a complex condition that can lead to death in the most severe cases.
