    Have you looked into the much more well-documented link between HPA axis disruption and rapid weight loss in women? quite a bit of literature showing that fasting, anorexia, bulimia or rapid weight loss is definitely a causal factor in defects in pulsatile GnRH secretion. It’s more obvious there and there are more studies because the hormone deficiencies have a more obvious outcome in those cases – menstrual interruption.

    It’s functionally identical to what would cause Low T in men though, same kind of disruption to the same areas – only the outcome is different.

    Great piece by the way.
