Introduction: FGF-21 is a protein that is produced by the liver and adipocytes. In patients with anorexia nervosa (AN), it could be involved in a complex adaptive response to starvation. In addition, this newly discovered protein could play pathogenic role in trabecular skeletal homeostasis. The aim of our work was to evaluate the concentrations of FGF-21 and bone metabolism in patients with AN.Methods: Thirty seven female patients (aged 14.76±3.99 ...
