Symptoms of anorexics can be seen through the person’s behavior and the physical ailments a person suffers from. A person who might exhibit symptoms of anorexia exhibit a few behaviors. For one, they might become overly restrictive of their diet, and when they do eat, they mostly push food around on their plates. The person might chew food and spit it out in a napkin.
Many anorexics might avoid publically eating with friends, with some isolating themselves from relationships with friends. Anorexics are consumed by caloric intake and spend a lot of time obsessing about when they are going to eat and how much they are going to eat. Physical ailments of the anorexic are initially exhibited in the dark circles around their eyes. When they do begin to lose weight, their frames appear skeletal at advanced stages, but it is not uncommon to see the person’s ribs and back (scapula) showing.
Anorexia can mess up a few of the body’s systems. For one, the endocrine, circulatory, and digestive systems can be affected by the loss of the nutrients and the vitamins that we get from food. Furthermore, at excessively low weights, anorexics have to be hospitalized because they become very weak.
