Osteoporosis in anorexia nervosa: prevention and treatment.
Int J Eat Disord 2003; 33(2):113-26IJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Osteoporosis is a very prevalent complication of anorexia nervosa. In contrast to the many other medical complications of anorexia, osteoporosis and its sequelae of fractures, kyphosis, and pain may persist regardless of the overall treatment outcome.

DISCUSSION

Traditional well-proven therapies for postmenopausal osteoporosis are not as effective against osteoporosis in anorexia nervosa. Therefore, clinicians who treat these patients must become increasingly vigilant about osteoporosis in regards to preventive, diagnostic, and treatment strategies.
