Abstract

Background: Current literature suggests that diet is involved in either the development of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or contributes to symptom severity, but to date, there are no studies evaluating eating attitudes of adolescents with PMS. The aim of this study was to evaluate dietary intake and eating attitudes in adolescents with PMS.
