Health Risks Of Anorexia
Anorexia = Lion's Den
To ignore the health
risks of anorexia and dabble into it, is like ignoring a lion in its den while attempting to pick your ball that flew in there.
The mission may be
excused but the risks may cost lives.
So it is with anorexia.
Many health risks are associated with it.
Battling with anorexia really means battling to save a life.
I had the health risks of anorexia without knowing they had anything to
do with anorexia or the fact that I wasn’t eating enough.
One of the riskiest part
of the practice of anorexia is what it does to the heart.
If you have heart
palpitations and heartaches, and you are anorexic, hmm… watch it! Cardiac arrest or irreparable heart
damage could be knocking at your doors.
While this is said to be seen in long-term anorexics,
it could start soon after the beginning.
Yea, depending on your system's composition.
Lack of proper rest through sleeping is one huge risk of this
eating disorder. It doesn’t just end in your not sleeping well,
but lowers your productivity.
Sleeplessness adds to the headaches.
Lack of food and proper nutrition causes headaches as
the brain is deprived of the needed energy to run on.
The result is headaches.
I remember having these headaches almost on a constant basis.
I'd go to bed feeling the aches, wake up in the morning
still experiencing it, and go through the day bearing it.
-Tooth Decay And
Every good food you
eat has nourishment it supplies to different
parts of the body.
An anorexic denies self and systems access to these
Tooth, nails, other bones become brittle.
They give way at the slightest pressure. Nails break easily, teeth develop
holes, for example.
Lack of food causes dizziness. In some victims of anorexia, this progresses
to fainting or passing out.
Blurred vision when not dizzy is a usual experience.
-Poor Blood Circulation
This is critical and shows up as pins and needles in
the limbs and other body parts.
I experienced this almost on a daily basis without linking
it to my anorexia lifestyle.
There are more certainly but these are felt by most anorexics.
