Abstract

To identify the pattern of bone mineral density in postmenopausal women through retrospective study in 40 postmenopausal women using Dexa instrument in bones (L2 - L4). Results with 15% of survey formula accuracy were found: mean of menopausal age was 53.25 years, normal bone mineral density 30%, osteopenia 52.5%, and osteoporosis 17.5%. A very strong relationship (r=0.547) and a significant relationship (p=0.000) between body height and bone mineral density were found in this study, and there was a moderate (r=0.315) and significant (p= 0.047) relationship between body weight and bone mineral density, and likewise there was a moderate (r=-0.301) and significant (p=0.059) relationship between duration of menopause and bone mineral density. By contrast, no relationship was found between age (r=0.119) and Body Mass Index (BMI) (r=0.086) and bone mineral density.
