People with anorexia nervosa (AN) are at risk of dying sooner than bulimia nervosa (BN). Research published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, July issue, prove it.
Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder is a mental illness sufferers feel afraid of getting fat and restrain the appetite is not natural, to lose the hunger at all. While Bulimia is a disease of overeating, then spat it out.
Jon Arcelus, LMS, M.Sc., MRCPsych., Ph.D., from Leicester General Hospital, UK, examined the relationship of disease with a mortality risk of anorexia. He examined 36 cases of various scientific articles published between January 1966 and September 2010.
He found that people with anorexia death rate of 5.1%, which 1.3% were suicides. Meanwhile, people with bulimia have a lower risk of cardiovascular death, only 1.7%.
Although it is possible the death of people with anorexia caused by other factors, but researchers also looked at mortality rates of anorexia sufferers, the disease is higher than other mental disorders such as schizophrenia and depression.
