Anorexia causes severe physical damage and in many cases may result in death.

Treatment of the disease decreases the mortality rate to 1 to 2% but treatment is a difficult and long process. While 60% of those treated enjoy a full recovery, 20% continue with the disease and the other 20% relapse back into the disease. Treatments proven to be the most successful are those which combine elements of hospitalization, psychological counseling on individual, group, family and support levels and some pharmacological treatments to decrease depression.
