Hello I'm back because I changed my mind, I would also like to delete the posts that could harm someone I made in the old account and I would like you to remove this doubt of mine.

Fernando, we've already discussed about that. It's not just the fat, but the starvation itself, whose metrics is BMI. From BMI=14 kgm-2 down, death is imminent in most cases.

So does anyone in this forum have any clues as to the best way to help an anorexic?  I don't know of anyone here with this training offhand.   I have read about some very interesting trials they are doing to test a possible new treatment at Johns Hopkins.  Other than that, I'm not sure what can be done since its such a weird and profound mental disorder.
