Abstract

Context: Anorexia nervosa is characterized by hypogonadism and relative hypercortisolemia. We have demonstrated that free testosterone levels are low in women with anorexia nervosa, with the lowest levels in those receiving oral contraceptives (OCPs), and that dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) sulfate is reduced only in those receiving OCPs
