What is Anorexia?

Updated: Jul 25

  • Physical, biological, mental, and emotional factors all play a role in an individual's loss of appetite.

  • A person's appetite should return to normal after the disorder is relieved and treated.

  • Many people around the world experience anorexia at some point in their lives.

  • Immunocompromised and disease-fighting agents are lost when a person does not eat for a long period of time, making the disorder more serious.

  • Some people lose their appetite all day long, while others only eat at specific times of the day or only eat certain foods.

  • When one's appetite is diminished, this is referred to as a reduced appetite.

  • Anorexia is the medical term for being unable to eat due to a lack of food intake.

  • Any ailment can affect a person's hunger.




It's also possible for the person to go without food for anywhere from one meal to several days at a time.


This condition is also referred to as anorexia, which is a symptom rather than a disease in and of itself.
