Anorexia is a serious and complex illness and usually requires specialist medical care. Treatment for anorexia aims to encourage weight gain and healthy eating habits so that the person achieves a normal weight for their age and height. Treatment is usually most effective when the person positively wants to get better. However, as anorexia is often associated with very complex emotional issues, reconising the underlying causes and learning to cope with them can be the most effective way to treat the illness.
Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight, even when they are starved or are completely out of energy and needs to re-nourish. Eating, food, and weight control become obsessions.
