Anorexic woman. Conceptual image of a thin anorexic woman being haunted by the image of an unrealistically thin doll. Anorexia nervosa is a psychological disorder in which people intentionally starve themselves. This leads to rapid weight loss and ill health due to malnutrition. If not treated, patients may starve themselves to death. Counselling and therapy may help, along with antidepressant drugs.
