Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The relevance of repeated body mass index (BMI) assessments for long-term outcome in anorexia nervosa (AN) was studied. METHOD: Two-hundred and twelve adolescent patients aged 10-18 (Mean 14.9) years from five sites were followed up for an average of 8.3 years after first admission. Various predictors of BMI at follow-up were analyzed. RESULTS: In comparison to subjects with normal BMI (<17.5) at final follow-up, subjects with BMI 17.5) at follow-up in a model of logistic regression. CONCLUSION: The long-term outcome of adolescent AN reflects the normal tracking of BMI over time. Presumably, the tracking in AN patients is somewhat reduced in comparison to healthy subjects.
