Ting Ting (alias), 26, went from weighing 100 kilograms to 25 kg in the span of eight years. However, the 175-centimeter-tall woman was also at death’s door. When the ambulance reached the Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University in Jiangsu province in May, Ting Ting was diagnosed with anorexia, severe malnutrition, multiple organ failure, anemia and disturbance of consciousness, according to report of Yangtse Evening Post, a local newspaper in Nanjing on Tuesday.

After three courses of treatment and nursing rehabilitation, Ting Ting’s weight had increased to 45 kg, and her overall body functions gradually recovered.
