Anorexia Nervosa is the deliberate resistance to maintain an acceptable body weight, specifically by refusing to eat. Anorexia is characterized by an intense fear of weight gain and a severely distorted body image. Anorexia is often accompanied by denial, or the refusal to acknowledge that there is a problem. Anorexia, like all eating disorders, is a lifelong condition that never goes away. You can get treatment and regain your health, but you will always be affected to some degree by anorexia. Anorexia is treated through therapy, support groups and psychological treatment. If anorexia gets too far, you might have to be monitored and force-fed at a hospital. It may seem absurd to let anorexia get this far, but the refusal to eat easily becomes an obsession that many women become consumed by. Other serious health concerns are caused by anorexia, some long-term and others short-term.
