Diuretic or laxative misuse may be responsible for decreased magnesium and calcium levels particularly when they are associated with an inadequate dietary intake in chronic starvation: in this case, not only the risk for arrhythmias is higher but other symptoms such as weakness, constipation, seizures, and tetany may complicate the clinical course. The physician must pay great attention during the refeeding phase: he must be very careful in refeeding the subject and apply a slow and gradual administration of nutrients; otherwise, magnesium will rapidly move into the cells together with glucose with a consequent dangerous hypomagnesemia [80, 81].

Any other therapy in the absence of nutritional intervention will be ineffective. In case of a noncompliant chronic subject, refractory to gain a safe weight, the physician may be required to limit the major systemic and organ-specific complications as far as possible: for instance, electrolyte replacement or estrogen therapy may contribute to limit the cardiovascular risk or the progressive bone loss, despite of its poor efficacy in emaciated subjects. In the process of refeeding, an outpatient should receive the calories required to increase ½ kg/week, while an inpatient should receive the calories required for an increase of 1 kg/week.

NPY is involved in the regulation of the HPG axis: if it remains elevated in the CSF of AN patients after the recovery of normal body weight, it could play a role in the maintenance of amenorrhea. Its elevated levels may represent a homeostatic tool to stimulate feeding and reduce energy expenditure; in the same way, it may contribute to the onset of binge eating that often occurs after periods of food restriction. Endogenous opioids stimulate hunger too; an increased overall opioid tonus has been described in symptomatic anorexic patients, even if the b-endorphin circadian rhythm has been found to be reduced by some authors.
