Women cured of anorexia nervosa have redistributed body fat after weight gain

Women, who had suffered from the condition of anorexia nervosa and got cured,// often may have redistributed body fat. When they start gaining weight after their harmful health condition, the increased body fat does not get distributed in the same manner as it was before. Instead the body fat often gets deposited in an abnormal way, at least in the short term.

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by purposeful weight loss that is often brought about by the patient. Poor self-image often causes the disorder that may result in malnutrition of varying degrees, with endocrine and metabolic changes happening as a side effect that can cause disturbance in all the body functions.

The researchers of the study had looked into the body fat redistribution in women who had been cured of anorexia nervosa and had got back their healthy body weight. They had used instruments like dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, anthropometry, and whole-body magnetic resonance imaging to find out the body fat distribution in them versus in typically healthy women of the same age. The results of the study show that in the short term, for anorexic women, weight gain tend to collect around the abdominal areas.
