Risk Factors for Anorexia
Risk factors discussion:
Those with anorexia are often characterized as
perfectionists and overachievers who appear to be in control. In

About risk factors:
Risk factors for Anorexia are factors that do not seem
to be a direct cause of the disease,
but seem to be associated in some way.

makes the chances
of getting a condition higher but does
not always lead to Anorexia.
Also, the absence of any risk factors
or having a protective factor does not necessarily
guard you against getting Anorexia.
