Hello! I'm worried about myself. I'm 155 cm and my weight is 48 but i've still got a bally full of fat. IDK if i'm underweight or not. How can i know?
***Please nobody comment about BMI. That is the opposite of what I just posted.***
Honestly, height and weight are not the best measurements for determining if someone has an ED. I’d take a look at your behaviors around food. Are you restricting certain foods? Are you restricting ANY foods for weight loss reasons? Do you have a bad self-image? Are you engaging in bulimic/BED/anorexic behaviors?
If so, that’s where my worry is. Because ED behaviors lead to nutritional deficiencies which can lead to all sorts of health problems–heart arrhythmias, liver failure, kidney failure, catabolism of muscles, hair and nail problems, etc.
If you are a woman, there is always a small pouch on your belly that is important. Even the fittest women have that small pouch because its part of the immune system–its called the omentum and it protects against infections and toxins.
ED’s have bad health consequences even if you aren’t underweight. Please see a doctor if you’re having serious (or even not-that-serious) health issues. Message me anytime if you need help.
