Authors:1988, Casper, R. C., Pandey, G., Jaspan, J. B. and Rubenstein, A. H.
"Nonrecovered patients (n = 7) showed abnormal eating attitudes at an average underweight of 20% with persistent amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea. They had high fasting FFA plasma levels, significantly greater than normal rises in plasma glucose, a significant delay in serum insulin secretion, higher mean glucose levels before and after controlling for amount of exercise, and paradoxical release of GH."
