Manorexia?

Hey all, I dug through memories and I couldn't find it answered. If I overlooked something, I apologize.

Is the DSM-IV criteria for anorexia specific to females? One would think that the maximum body fat % would be different, at least subtly, for men and women. Also, it specifies that amenorrhea is only necissary for post-menarchal females. However, I wonder if there are similar warning signs specific to men.

Thanks in advance!
