A 2-year prospective study of bone metabolism and bone mineral density in adolescents with anorexia nervosa

Abstract

Osteopenia and osteoporosis are complications of adolescent anorexia nervosa (AN) and may result in a permanent deficit of bone mass in adulthood. It is still unclear if a complete catch-up in bone mineral density (BMD) is possible after weight rehabilitation in AN. Methods.
