Association between anorexia nervosa and type 2 diabetes in Sweden: Etiological clue for the primary prevention of type 2 diabetes.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Caloric restriction has been found to be protective against the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) in experimental animal studies. However, studies examining this association in humans are limited. In the present study, we examined whether individuals with anorexia nervosa, one marker of severe caloric restriction in humans, have a low incidence of T2D by using several Swedish registries.
