In brief: Absolutely

Once one reaches a certain percentage below your ideal body weight, all sorts of bodily functions begin to shut down for self-preservation.
Even atheletes without an eating disorder may find this to be the case, and it nearly universal with anoerxia as well as starvation from other causes.
