From: Impact of speed and magnitude of weight loss on the development of brain trophic changes in adolescents with anorexia nervosa: a case control study

Clinical variable Volumetric/clinical variable Spearman p a
DeltaBMI Gray matter −0.724 <0.02
DeltaBMI CSF 0.631 <0.04

  1. a Spearman non-parametric test.
  2. DeltaBMI = index of body weight loss which expresses the variation of the BMI between the onset of the disorder and the evaluation.
  3. DeltaBMI/disease duration (rapidity of BMI variation).
  4. CSF = cerebrospinal fluid.
