What is Anorexia?? Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by extremely low body weight, distorted body image and an obsessive fear of gaining weight. [1]
The term anorexia nervosa was established in 1873 by Sir William Gull, one of Queen Victoria's personal physicians.[2] The term is of Greek origin: a (α, prefix of negation), n (ν, link between two vowels) and orexis (ορεξις, appetite), thus meaning a lack of desire to eat.[3]
