(E) osteoporosis

Quote:
Endurance training: In female endurance athletes, large volumes of training can lead to decreased bone density and an increased risk of osteoporosis.[26] This effect might be caused by intense training suppressing menstruation, producing amenorrhea, and it is part of the female athlete triad.
Gymnastics, figure skating, ballet, diving, swimming, and long distance running are examples of sports which emphasize low body weight. The Triad is seen more often in aesthetic sports such as these versus ball game sports. Women taking part in these sports may be at an increased risk for developing female athlete triad.

E; osteoporosis

Also by seeing what she does,stress fractures will be very common for her.
She is not menstruating because she has anorexia nervosa and also because avid athletes tend to screw up their menstrual period.
