What are the signs and symptoms of anorexia nervosa?

At Priory, we understand that anorexia nervosa can be a severe and debilitating mental illness, which can be extremely difficult to cope with. In addition, anorexia can also be a very secretive disorder, with individuals going to extreme lengths to conceal their weight loss or eating habits, which means that often, expert help and treatment is not sought in a timely manner.

The signs and symptoms of anorexia can vary from person to person, and can be categorised into psychological, physical and behavioural/social symptoms.

This page was clinically reviewed by Dr Pippa Hugo (MBChB, MRCPsych) in July 2018, and is scheduled to be reviewed again in July 2020. To view all Priory anorexia specialists, please click here.
