Were you looking for information about Anorexia? Anoraxia is a common misspelling of anorexia.
An estimated 0.5 percent to 3.7 percent of females suffer from anorexia in their lifetime. The eating disorder is identified (in part) by an intense desire to be thin, repeated dieting attempts, refusal to eat, and excessive weight loss. People with anorexia can be extremely thin and still believe that they are overweight. The course and outcome of anorexia nervosa vary among individuals; some fully recover after a single episode, and some have a fluctuating pattern of weight gain and relapse.
