Prevalence and risk factors of low bone mineral density among premenopausal women aged 40 to 45 years of Bikaner
Abstract:
To assess the prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia among premenopausal women aged 40 to 45 years of age attending the free orthopedic care camps in Bikaner district of Rajasthan. A total of 760 premenopausal women were included in the study. All subjects underwent bone mineral density measurement through dual-energy X-ray absorptiomentry (DEXA) scan. The overall prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia was 13.8 and 61.1 per cent, respectively. A pattern of level of physical activity, exercise, exposure to sunlight, supplementation of calcium and vitamin D, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption and caffeine intake through tea/coffee were taken in consideration to know the behavioral risk factors of the respondents. Essential steps are needed for better public education and a wider dissemination of knowledge and awareness regarding osteoporosis and its prevention.
