Growth hormone level at admission and its evolution during refeeding are predictive of short-term outcome in restrictive anorexia nervosa

Abstract : The growth hormone (GH)– insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) axis is dramatically altered in patients with anorexia nervosa (AN). The aim of the present study was to investigate whether GH and IGF-1 could be predictors of outcome in patients with a restrictive form of AN. Blood levels of GH, IGF-1, adipocytokines, ghrelin, insulin, glucose, and sex and thyroid hormones were measured in eleven women inpa-tients with AN and in ten healthy women controls. Three stages were compared during refeeding: admission (T0), when BMI reached 16 kg/m 2 (T1) and at discharge when BMI reached 17·5 kg/m 2 (T2). Clinical status was assessed 6 months after discharge from hospital (T3), and remission was defined by the maintenance of a BMI $ 17·5 kg/m
