Loss of appetite [anorexia] as a symptom
Loss of appetite and anorexia are two separate constructs. Anorexia is associated with a mental condition of the desire to be thing, whereas loss of appetite can be for a more physical reason. I do not believe that anorexia should be in ( ) next to loss of appetite — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:50, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
The medical term "anorexia" refers to the loss of appetite, or lack of eating. The connotation associated with it is really what is referred to as the psychiatric disorder "anorexia nervosa", which links this lack of eating to a mental condition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:38, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
