A 23-year-old female asked:

My friend was once anorexic. now she goes to her doctor for a weekly weigh in and her doctor says she's a healthy weight. still looks underweight?

Anorexia: Glad to hear your friend has made progress. At this point she needs to avoid regression. Weekly weigh ins w/doc is one way to help prevent that. If she want to stop that try to convince her otherwise. Check ups w/doc more important than how your friend looks. Peace and good health.
