About This Topic
Anorexia nervosa, is a type of eating disorder, is characterized by weight loss (or lack of appropriate weight gain in growing children); difficulties maintaining an appropriate body weight for height, age, and stature; and, in many individuals, distorted body image. Anorexia nervosa is a psychological and potentially life-threatening eating disorder, can cause extreme and dangerous eating behaviorsis. These extreme eating behaviors cause other serious health problems and sometimes death. Anorexia is more common among girls and women than boys and men. In one recent study, 13% of American women over 50 had signs of an eating disorder. In addition, studies have found that many people with anorexia also have other mental health problems such as depression or anxiety. In this special edition, we invite submissions that show case new, inventive and original approaches to longstanding issues in anorexia nervosa assessment, treatment and research. Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives are welcome in all areas pertinent to this topic. All accepted papers will be published free of charge.
