Better characterization of bone geometry in adolescents with anorexia nervosa (AN) may improve understanding of skeletal deficits in this population. Our objective was to determine whether hip cross-sectional geometry and bone strength were altered in adolescents with AN. Measurements of the left total proximal femur and body composition were obtained in 85 adolescents with AN and 61 healthy controls by dual X-ray absorptiometry. The Hip Structural Analysis (HSA) program was used to determine… CONTINUE READING
