Answer

The outcome of anorexia nervosa also depends on the patient’s body mass index (BMI) and his or her weight loss at presentation, as well as the duration of symptoms, duration of inpatient care, and state of family relationships. [63] In addition, patients with the restricting subtype of anorexia nervosa tend to be more refractory to treatment and are at high risk of death. [64]
