(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) – A 16-year battle with anorexia has ended fatally.
Kate Chilver, 31, had battled anorexia for 16 years, and just died in July at a weight of 65 pounds in what doctors are calling ‘the worst case of anorexia’ they have ever seen.
Accroding to International Business Times, since she was 15, Chilver was admitted into mental health institutions, and Dr. Frances Connan, a consultant psychologist who treated her at Vincent Square Clinic in south west London, said she had the most severe case he had ever come across.
Chilver was underweight for nearly 20 years, and eventually a lack of blood supply actually killed some of her organs.
All attempts to tube feed and treat Chilver failed.
