Some of the complications of this disease are excessive compelling sports, excessive time spent in the gym, spending a lot of money on sports supplements, abnormal diet and even steroid-style substance use. As the popularity of bodybuilding sports increases in the 21st century, the number of patients also increases. Although many studies have been conducted on the Anorexia Nevroza due to the body image concerns of female patients, in the literature very little space bigorexia given.

    Bigoreksiya, özellikle vücut geliştirme sporcularını etkileyen bir hastalıktır.

Bu derleme bigoreksiya ile ilgili farkındalığın  arttırılması için mevcut literatür bilgilerinin sentezini içermektedir.
