What is the cause for my friend to stop eating ?

My friend has stopped eating and if she does eat she eats hardly anything. She weighs herself close to everyday. She is fifteen. Do you think she has an eating disorder?

Hi Dear
Is she also conscious of her looks? Is that the reason she does not eat or did it happen after some infection??
What is her Hb levels ??
if there is infectious cause she may need antibiotics and anthelmentics.
If it is anorexia nervosa , then psychological counselling and maybe medication will be required.
