AbstractAbstract PDF
Purpose:The purpose of the study was to determine factors affecting bone mineral density among premenopausal women aged over 45 years old and make a contribution to preventing osteoporosis among postmenopausal women. Materials and Methods:A total of 133 women enrolled in the study and completed a self-administered questionnaire that measured results of bone mineral density exam and biochemical exam, demographic characteristics, smoking and drinking, physical activities and reproductive characteristics.
:The results of the study are summarized as follows: Of total subjects, 20.2% showed a reduction on bone mineral density. Age was the most important factor predicting bone mineral density level. A frequent intake of meat rather than vegetables had a significant impact on bone mineral density. Women with a menstruation cycle shorter than 28 days showed significantly high bone mineral density. Multiple regression analysis revealed a correlation between age and risk of osteoporosis. The explainability for variables was 16%.
:It is necessary to develop programs designed to help women in their 30s to maintain the maximum bone density and prevent osteoporosis after menopause.
