Anorexia is an eating disorder in which people believe that they are overweight even when they are extremely thin. A person with this disease has an intense desire to be thin and may diet, fast, or over-exercise to maintain an abnormally low weight.

Treatment for the condition may involve hospitalization, psychotherapy, and family therapy.
