To clarify the clinical significance of elevation of serum aminotransferase levels in anorexia nervosa, we analyzed the relationships of serum aminotransferase levels to other serum biochemistry and physical conditions before and during refeeding therapy in 101 patients with anorexia nervosa. Before refeeding therapy, body mass index (BMI) was distributed from 9.9 to 16.4 kg/m2 (13.2 +/- 1.3, mean +/- SD), and 29 patients (28.7%) showed abnormally high aminotransferase levels. Among 17 patients… CONTINUE READING
