Bone density of lumbar vertebrae (L2 to L4) and the whole body in 29 patients with anorexia nervosa were measured by dual photon absorptiometry, and the results were compared with those of 10 age-matched normal controls. The patients had significantly lower bone mineral density (BMD) in L3 and L2-4 than controls. However, there was no difference in whole-body BMD. L3 and L2-4 BMD was positively correlated with body weight and was negatively correlated with duration of illness and amenorrhea… CONTINUE READING
