Low Bone Mineral Density in Adolescents with Eating Disorders
By Erin Knopf, MD, and Philip S. Mehler, MD
Eating Recovery Center, Denver
Adolescence is a critical time for bone development, and 40% to 60% of peak bone mass accrues during these years. Unfortunately, the peak age of onset for AN also occurs during adolescence. The time of onset, type and duration of the eating disorder, as well as the degree of nutritional deficit, will determine whether peak adult bone mass can be achieved. Drs. Knopf and Mehler offer development, diagnosis, and treatment options.
