Physical Signs of Male Anorexia

There are a number of mental signs that become present within men when affected by an eating disorder, but there are also a number of physical signs that show as well. You will start to notice a very low body weight where you may even start to see bones show through the skin. For some guys you may notice that they are extremely thin, but still have muscles. This is mostly common with body builder and weight lifters. A lack of energy causes men to become fatigued very often. You may even notice that you are experiencing trouble staying balanced. This can be caused from having a low body temperature and especially an extremely low blood pressure. With men, a more noticeable loss of hair is present on the head and odd growth of hair in other body parts can occur as well. Tingling throughout the body (especially hands and feet) can occur.
