Were you looking for information on Anorexia? Annarexia is a common misspelling of anorexia.
People with anorexia can literally starve themselves to death. Women tend to develop the condition more than men; however, anyone can develop this eating disorder.
Anorexia is identified, in part, by a refusal to eat, an intense desire to be thin, repeated dieting attempts, and excessive weight loss. People with the condition believe they are fat even when they are dangerously thin. They also typically have low self-esteem and are very concerned about pleasing others and overly critical of themselves.
Treatment for anorexia often includes therapy and nutritional counseling. More severe cases may require hospitalization.
