    Explanation
    The squat test is a physical fitness test that assesses the strength and endurance of the muscles in the lower body, particularly the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. An anorexic individual who fails the squat test may indicate that their muscles have weakened significantly due to malnutrition and lack of proper nutrition. This can be a serious concern as it suggests that the body is breaking down muscle tissue to provide energy, which can lead to further health complications. Therefore, if someone fails the squat test, it is recommended to seek immediate medical attention and intervention.

Antidepressants, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), can help regulate the neurotransmitters in the brain and reduce the occurrence of REM sleep, which is associated with cataplexy episodes.
