Types of disease
This illness is being represented in two ways, in which the patients try to lose weight:
- “No entry” – in this situation, the person who suffers from the disease believes that the less food comes inside – the less weight will be gained. This kind tries to keep and lose weight by fasting, excessive exercise and a general refusal to eat.
- Each downfall is a sign for uprising and vice versa – In this case there is a “vicious magic circle”. The patient takes drastic actions in order to reduce weight fast (such as vomiting, diarrhea and fasting), but afterwards the body demands back what it has lost, which leads to compulsive eating, and so it goes on and on.
The disorder is diagnosed by 4 criteria, according to the American Psychiatric Diagnosis book, an accepted source for diagnosing mental illness:
- The person had dropped his weight down to 15% below the minimum weight to his age and height and refuses to gain and keep the normal weight.
- The person is being obsessive over counting calories and afraid to gain weight and be perceived as a fat person.
- Distorted body concept – the person does not understand what is a normal body is, overrating the importance of skinny stature, disgusted by the sight of fat and doesn’t recognize the severity of his low weight.
- For women – menopause. For men – low testosterone level.
