About the Course:
Osteoporosis has traditionally been considered a female problem.
This study’s purpose is to evaluate bone mineral density (BMD) in males with eating disorders.
Method: Charts of 70 consecutive males admitted to an eating disorder program were reviewed. Females admitted during the same time period were used for comparison. BMD was measured
by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry.
Results: Thirty-six percent (19/53) had osteopenia and 26% (14/53) had osteoporosis at the lumbar spine. A disproportionate
number of males with anorexia restricting or binge/purge subtype (ANR/ANB) had osteoporosis, as well as those of older age, lower weights, and longer illness duration. BMD for ANR and ANB
males was significantly lower than females (p 5 .02 and p 5 .03, respectively). In multivariate stepwise linear and logistic regression, lowest BMI and illness duration predicted lumbar Zscores.
Conclusion: Males with ANR/ANB often have severe bone disease, which is worse than females, and is best predicted by a
patient’s lowest BMI and illness duration.
Content for this course is based on an article from the International Journal of Eating Disorders, the official journal of the Association for Eating Disorders.
This course is based on the reading-based online, High Risk of Osteoporosis in Male Eating Disordered Patients created by Phil Mehler, MD and Arnold Anderson, MD in 0.
