- ... Recent studies demonstrated an association between low serum sodium levels and reduced bone density. Patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) are at greater risk for osteoporosis as well as for hyponatremia. The aim of the present study was to assess the association between hyponatremia and bone mineral density (BMD) in a large cohort of adolescent inpatients with AN.A historic cohort study of 174 adol ...

- ... Klotho is a trans-membrane protein which can be shed to act as a hormone; its blood levels may be regulated by the GH/IGF-1 axis. Klotho deficient mice exhibit short lifespan and characteristics of aging and malnutrition, including decreased fat and muscle mass, osteopenia, and impaired fertility. As anorexia nervosa (AN) is characterized by malnutrition and GH resistance, we hypothesized klotho l ...
