These disorders range greatly in effect from anorexia nervosa which is extreme low body weight because of lack of nourishment, to pica where the patient consumes items that are not considered food, to rumination disorder where the patient is unable to keep the food stomached and usually regurgitates it soon after consumption. Eating disorders sometimes link into other disorders such as depression and anxiety.
