In brief: Balance nutrition
The eating disorder has to be treated and get back on balance nutrition.
Hormone treatment alone will not work unless hormone deficiency is also the problem.

In brief: Hypogonadism
Low stimulants to your ovaries cause low estrogen in anorexia.
Weight gain helps. Oral contraceptives containing medium estrogen doses can help. Also check thyroid function.
