People with anorexia often have low self-esteem and may feel other people see them as overweight.

Symptoms of anorexia may include:

  • Skipping meals or severely restricting meal portions
  • Excessive exercise
  • Anxiety or panic when eating
  • Body checking (constantly measuring parts of the body)

Anorexia often starts in the teenage years. Although it is more often seen in girls and women, the disorder is becoming more common in men and boys. Left untreated anorexia can cause serious physical problems. It is important to get treatment for both the physical and mental symptoms of anorexia.
