NF07.0/T73.0 Effects of hunger



Effects of hunger can be caused by a variety of factors, including poverty, lack of access to food, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices.


Symptoms of hunger can include low energy levels, weight loss, poor concentration, and irritability. A doctor may diagnose hunger by performing a physical examination and taking a medical history.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis for effects of hunger can include malnutrition, anorexia nervosa, hypoglycemia, and diabetes.


Treatment for hunger should focus on addressing the underlying cause. This may include increasing access to food and nutrition, providing medical treatment for underlying conditions, and providing counseling to address any lifestyle choices that may be contributing to the problem.


The prognosis for effects of hunger depends on the underlying cause. If untreated, hunger can have serious long-term consequences, such as malnutrition, fatigue, and anemia. However, with proper treatment, these effects can be reversed.
