Abstract

Introduction: Osteoporosis is a progressive metabolic bone disease characterized by reduction of mineral density of bone, which leads to reduction of bone firmness, increased fragility and increased risk of bone
fractures. The aims of this study were to determine the age structure and average values of BMI in female patients with a diagnosis of osteoporosis and osteopenia, to determine the value of T-score before and after
therapy, and to show a correlation of frequency of fractures in relation to already given diagnosed and the presence of menopause.
Methods: A retrospective study was conducted on 50 female respondents with diagnosis of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Included female respondents underwent densitometry or ultrasound screening method of
heels in which high degree of osteopenia and osteoporosis is detected.
Results: The average age of the female respondents included in this study was 48.06 ± 11.97 years and all the respondents were in the category of women with normal body weight. There is a difference in the values of T-score of respondents with osteoporosis compared to osteopenia. Value of T-score decreases in relation to increase of number of years, so the older female respondents had lower values of T-score.
Conclusion: The incidence of osteoporosis and osteopenia was higher among active working female respondents in menopause. Respondents with osteoporosis had lower values of T-score, physical and medicament
therapy in combination led to improvement of T-score. Female respondents with a low value of T-score, with diagnosis of osteoporosis and in menopause, mostly had bone fractures.
