Just found this on a hospital site about anorexia:

http://www.massgeneral.org/children/adolescenthealth/articles/aa_anorexia.aspx:

•Electrolyte abnormities (low blood potassium, sodium, and chloride)

•Heart problems (abnormal heart rhythm, mitral valve prolapse, and heart failure). It is important to know that as the body is starved, the heart muscle shrinks. So, the heart has a reduced ability to pump blood. As their cardiac output diminishes, athletes lose endurance and the capacity to exercise

And another one:

http://www.eatingdisordersonline.com/medical/arrhythmia.php

As the body is starved, the muscles are starved. The heart is a muscle, and consequently can begin to deteriorate, and heart failure becomes a very real risk. Low levels of sodium, zinc, potassium and calcium, can also cause abnormal heart rhythms or arrhythmia
