Have you considered the bone loss risk in Anorexia?


The health consequences of anorexia nervosa are extensive and severe.  At Eating Disorder Hope, we  frequently receive heart wrenching emails from individuals struggling with the health problems caused by, or correlated to, their eating disorder.  That is why we strongly encourage all individuals dealing with disordered eating, and concerned loved ones, to consider the bone loss risk in practicing anorexia.  The article:  Bone Loss and Eating Disorders , by Dr. Yong Lee, is an excellent overview of the risks, causes and treatment of osteopenia and osteoperosis related to anorexia.
