Anorexia Nervosa


As per available reports about 4 Relevant Journals, 9 Conferences, 7 Workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Anorexia Nervosa .

Anorexia nervosa is a complex eating disorder with three key features:

1.Refusal to maintain a healthy body weight.
2 An intense fear of gaining weight.
3. A distorted body image.

Anorexia affects both women and men of all ages. The major differences between dieting and anorexia are enumerated below: firstly healthy dieting is an attempt control weight whereas anorexia is an attempt to control your life and emotions. Secondly, in healthy dieting one’s self-esteem is based on more than just weight and body image, whereas in anorexia one’s self-esteem is based entirely on how much they weigh and how thin they are. Thirdly, in healthy dieting one views weight loss as a way to improve one’s health and appearance, whereas in anorexia one views weight loss as a way to achieve happiness. Lastly in healthy dieting one’s goal is to lose weight in a healthy way, whereas in anorexia becoming thin is all that matters; health is of no concern. Symptoms include dieting despite being thin, obsession with calories, fat grams, and nutrition, pretending to eat or lying about eating, preoccupation with food and strange or secretive food rituals.

Scope and Importance

Anorexia nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by self-starvation and excessive weight loss. Approximately 90-95% of anorexia nervosa sufferers are girls and women. Between 0.5–1% of American women suffer from anorexia nervosa. Anorexia nervosa is one of the most common psychiatric diagnoses in young women. In order for assessing a person suffering with Anorexia Nervosa, attention should be paid to the overall clinical assessment (repeated over time), including rate of weight loss, growth rates in children, objective physical signs and appropriate laboratory tests. It can damage one’s health and even threaten one’s life.  There are two types of anorexia. In the restricting type of anorexia, weight loss is achieved by restricting calories (following drastic diets, fasting, and exercising to excess). In the purging type of anorexia, weight loss is achieved by vomiting or using laxatives and diuretics. Eating disorders are much more complicated than that. The food and weight-related issues are symptoms of something deeper things like depression, loneliness, insecurity, pressure to be perfect, or feeling out of control. Things that any amount of dieting or weight loss cannot cure.

Market Analysis

While it is well known that anorexia nervosa is a deadly disorder, the death rate varies considerably between studies. This variation may be due to length of follow-up, or ability to find people years later, or other reasons. In addition, it has not been certain whether other subtypes of eating disorders also have high mortality. Overall people with anorexia nervosa had a six fold increase in mortality compared to the general population. Reasons for death include starvation, substance abuse, and suicide. Importantly the authors also found an increase rate of death from ‘natural’ causes, such as cancer. Globally anorexia is estimated to affect two million people as of 2013. It is estimated to occur in 0.9% to 4.3% of women and 0.2% to 0.3% of men in Western countries at some point in their life. About 0.4% of young females are affected in a given year and it is estimated to occur ten times less commonly in males. Rates in most of the developing world are unclear. Often it begins during the teen years or young adulthood. While anorexia became more commonly diagnosed during the 20th century it is unclear if this was due to an increase in its frequency or simply better diagnosis. In 2013 it directly resulted in about 600 deaths globally up from 400 deaths in 1990.  Approximately 1 in 1,000 or 0.10% or 272,000 people in USA.  The global market on treatment of Anorexia grew at a CAGR of 1.7% during the five years from 2008 to 2013. Growth can be partially attributed to increasing understanding and awareness of the prevalence of eating disorders. The diet-related industry is a 50 billion dollar a year enterprise.
