nd of the study.

When looking at each subject's bone mineral content, adjusted for their height, the researchers noticed that bone mineral content in the arms and legs increased less than would be expected with growth while the lumbar spine content increased more than expected. These changes in bone mineral content were largely explained by changes in the amount of fat and muscle in the body during the intensive weight loss program.

"As obesity treatment during adolescence becomes more frequent, it is important to understand the role of weight loss on bone health during this critical period," Dr. Stettler added.

This study was supported by the National Institutes of Health, the General Clinical Research Center at Children's Hospital, Knoll Pharmaceutical and Abbott Laboratories.

Dr. Stettler's coauthors were: Robert I. Berkowitz, M.D., chief of child and adolescent psychiatry at Children's Hospital; Joanna Cronquist of Children's Hospital; Justine Shults of the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine; Thomas A. Wadden, of the Weight and Eating Disorders Program at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine; and Babette S. Zemel, Ph.D.; and Mary B. Leonard, M.D. both of Children's Hospital.
