Abstract

The present study was aimed at investigating a) the risk of having bulimia in a heterogeneous population of secondary amenorrhea; b) the LH and FSH secretion under basal and stimulated conditions (GnRH challenge) according to the presence of bulimic risk in our study population; c) the clinical and endocrine factors predictive of the bulimic risk in amenorrheic women. Amenorrheic women (n=73; age: 23.1±4.8 yrs; BMI:20.2±2.2 kg/m2) filled in a self rating scale for bulimia (BITE) and were classified accordingly, as being at low risk (score
