Anorexia Symptoms and effects
Anorexia symptoms include a distorted image of one’s body and the fear associated with social acceptance lead to mood and psychotic disorders. The consequences can be serious – disturbances in internal organ functioning, endocrine system, and cardiovascular health. Anorexia and Depression often accompany each other; emotions that accompany anorexia, such as sadness, isolation, shame, rejection, a feeling of not belonging or being misunderstood by others, also lead to many complications in relationships with other people. The effect of anorexia is a gradual loss of control over both body and soul.

- Extreme fear of putting on weight.
- Avoiding food that may lead to an increase in body mass.
