Q:
How can I know if I am an anorexic?

A:
Anorexic refers to the people who are suffering from anorexia. Anorexia, also called anorexia nervosa, is a kind of eating disorder. It is characterized by the decreased sensation of appetite, an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of weight.

Anorexia can be diagnosed by its symptoms including thin appearance, extreme weight loss, swelling of arms or legs, irregular heart rhythms, constipation and abdominal pain, dehydration and insomnia.

Besides, the disease can be diagnosed by some medical tests including complete blood count (CBC) and more-specialized blood tests, X-rays, and a complete physical examination.

If you have some problems with eating, you should consult your doctor for advice.
