We treat girls with Anorexia Nervosa (sometimes called simply Anorexia), an eating disorder most frequently seen as an inability or refusal to maintain a healthy body weight, and an obsession with not gaining weight.
If your girl is suffering with Anorexia, she will seek continuously to lose weight, which might interfere considerably with her life activities and can be very dangerous to her health. She might be involved in forced vomiting after eating, abusing diet aids or enemas, or participating in excessive exercise.
If your daughter has shown extreme weight loss, or looks unusually thin, she might be struggling with Anorexia. Some other signs include insomnia, fatigue, bluish discoloration of fingers, fainting, dizziness, hair breakage or loss, lack of menstrual cycle at an appropriate age, and reduced tolerance to cold. Or, she may make excuses for not eating, saying she isn’t hungry, rushing to the bathroom after dinner (to purge her food), irrational irritability, depressed mood or social withdrawal. She might weigh herself very often, or keep looking for flaws in her shape in the mirror.
Clearview Horizon is an Ideal Setting to Help Your Daughter Conquer Anorexia Nervosa
The physical complications from Anorexia can be dreadfully serious, and range from anemia and imbalance of her body’s essential minerals to bone loss, kidney problems and even heart failure. That’s why it’s crucial to diagnose and get her help soon!
It is to be expected that your daughter will not want treatment, as Anorexia will leave her more concerned with staying thin than being healthy, but is essential to get help. Girls cannot overcome Anorexia on their own!
