How do I know if someone suffers from anorexia? My friend does not eat much during the day at all. The rare moments we have lunch or dinner together she always disappear for a long moment to the toilet. She is very much afraid of calories and has adopted very bad eating habits.

She is 16 yrs old.

Thank you
Hello,
She may be suffering from anorexia. You should try to talk about this with her. Anorexia can be a serious problem, especially for a young girl. This is generally a psychologic problem, so the best is to consult a psychologist for help and support.

Take care.

Hello
She sounds as if she has an eating disorder, and has issues with food.

Maybe she is only controlling her food and does not want to take in calories.
Anorexia is a serious and complicated illness which starts with the feeling of disgust towards one's how body.

Does she feels like this or does she still take care of herself?


For someone who suffers from anorexia she has difficulty to accept her body. Even if she is very thin she won't see it. Try to ask your friend how she feels about her body. What does her family think about this, she is only 16 therefore they must support her and get her help.

Good luck
