is there a way to help my anorexic girl friend?

Encourage help: If your friend will not take your advice you may need to enlist the help of other friends or family members. If you are sure your friend has anorexia be persistent as this disorder is serious and potentially fatal if not treated. Make sure she knows you are always available to offer support.
