Anorexia nervosa (AN) is an eating disorder characterized by self-induced starvation due to fear of adiposity. Ghrelin, gastric peptide with potent orexigenic, adipogenic, GH-releasing and metabolic properties, is elevated in AN. We have previously shown that intervention with exogenous ghrelin is not effective in terms of inducing neuroendocrine and appetite responses in AN. In this arm of the same study protocol we investigated glucose metabolism responses to 5 h i.v. infusion of active… CONTINUE READING
