Some patients spontaneously correct their condition and resume normal eating patterns. Anorexic people have physiological/biochemical features that are similar to individuals who are starving. Their catabolic hormone levels are high and their body energy stores are being raided as a result. Insulin resistance due to the catabolic hormones is observed. Liver and muscle glycogen levels are low. Severe protein depletion occurs. Fat stores are minimal. As the weight loss proceeds further, these individuals have a reduced bone mass (decreased mineral content of the bone), a decreased metabolic rate, decreased heart rate, hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, electrolyte imbalance, elevated free fatty acid and cholesterol levels, peripheral edema, and lastly, cardiac and renal failure.
