Prodromes Of Anorexia Nervosa Significant Weight Loss

Significant weight loss is acknowledged by patients as a critical prodromal risk factor. Patients report the appearance of the anorectic attitude around a weight loss of 15% of their previous weight [42]. A specified amount of weight loss is also a symptom of AN. The loss of weight during the prodromal phase may be induced by dieting but this is not necessarily the case. Other causes of weight loss may be fasting practices [43], or the loss of weight might be the consequence of a physical illness or a depressive disorder. As a symptom of AN, weight loss is typically defended and its seriousness is denied by the patient.
